Mother of the Bride
The Dream, the Reality, the Search for A Perfect DresseBook - 2005
"An account that is sweetly sentimental and brutally honest, touching and witty -- in short, a true gem." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review "A work that adds great luster to an already golden event." -- The Memphis Commercial Appeal "Her prose is spare, but rich with meaning and always very honest." -- The Cleveland Plain Dealer "Pithy wit and cute drawings sketch the happy tears, bittersweet memories and flares of anxiety that a daughter's wedding elicits." -- The Dallas Morning News The relationship between a mother and daughter is often fraught -- but never so much as during the preparations for that walk down the aisle. Ilene Beckerman has taken that walk with three daughters and tells us -- with great wisdom and wit -- why childbirth is less painful than planning a wedding.
