“In all, the voices of these diverse and compelling writers lead the reader through sunlight, shadows, shifting sands, and sometimes even a tidal wave in her mother relationship, yet each arrives into an ultimately peace-filled place where pain can still sometimes be a visitor, but where sunshine is a primary resident. This remarkable little book is filled with an uncommon grace and wisdom.”

“Wisdom Has Voice is a weaving of brave stories about the generations—grandmothers, mothers, and daughters. The melodies and colors of these stories take us through themes of joy and sorrow, identity and healing, where we find ourselves musing about time, truth, forgiveness, and love.”
~Linda Joy Myers, President, National Association of Memoir Writers, Author of The Power of Memoir
“Wisdom Has a Voice speaks to an essential truth: no woman comes into her own until she examines the bond with her mother. The twenty-five daughters from all walks of life whose memories are showcased in this international collection are not content to merely praise or blame their all-too-human mothers, but move courageously, truth by truth, into the realm of understanding.”
~Susan Bono, Founding Editor, Tiny Lights: A Journal of Personal Narrative
“In Wisdom Has a Voice daughters answer the haunting question: ‘To be or not to be like mother?’ As daughters remember their mothers’ lives, they discover meaning in translations of sorrows, dreams, and triumphs. Life enriching. Beautiful.”
~Teresa LeYung-Ryan, Author of Love Made of Heart and Build Your Writer’s workbook series
