“She was my best friend when sober and I was her worst enemy when she was drunk.”
With stunning honesty, My Mama’s Waltz brings to light the painful legacy of daughters of alcoholic mothers — in the first book to focus solely on this fractured relationship. Eleanor Agnew and Sharon Robideaux share their own personal accounts along with the memories and experiences of hundreds of women, from all ages and backgrounds, in an intimate and powerful narrative journey. Their recollections, courageous and unforgettable, resoundingly confirm that women who deal with the remnants of a childhood cut short by an alcoholic mother are not alone. Powerful, often wrenching, but ultimately hopeful and inspiring, My Mama’s Waltz offers the support and reassurance adult daughters seek to reconcile the past and heal the heart.
