Latina daughters finally have a chance to honor their mothers and inspire readers — by paying homage in Mamá to the strong women who have sacrificed and struggled, laughed and cried, and fought hard to create a better life for their daughters. In Mamá , you will discover the beauty as well as the complexity of the mother-daughter bond. Maria Perez-Brown spoke with Latinas from a variety of nationalities and lifestyles — some are famous, and some not so well known. The women she interviewed include actresses, doctors, filmmakers, as well as such public figures as Cristina Sara-legui, Esmeralda Santiago, Jaci Velásquez, Rosario Dawson, and Celia Cruz. In their own words, these daughters tell us about their relationship with their mothers — and of a bond every woman will recognize.
