Twenty-nine mothers of lesbians come together to trace their journeys towards acceptance of their daughters. Facing their fears and confusion, prejudice and misunderstandings, they speak honestly and bravely about the difficulties and joys of life with their "different daughters."
Writing about families, community, religion, grandchildren, bisexuality, transsexuality, and coming out, the authors of Different Daughters raise questions shared by all mothers. How can we accept our children for who they are? How can we love our children even when they are different from us?
