Dear Librarians,

Dreaming of a "year in Provence," in 2009 I urged my elderly mother to move to San Francisco to live with my teenage daughter and me. Filled with fairytale hope, we embarked on an experiment in intergenerational living that brought up unnerving memories. MOTHER DAUGHTER ME is the story of how three complex women navigate a challenging, turbulent journey together — and come out the other side much the better for it.

The New York Times called MOTHER DAUGHTER ME "The most raw, honest and engaging memoir I've read in a long time," and Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone called it a "brilliant, funny, poignant and wrenching story." Elle Magazine called the book "devoid of self-pity... [Hafner] is a bright — and appealing — heroine."
