Her mother, Miriam, a rigid and guarded woman, rushes to the hospital. As Miriam desperately waits at Ayas bedside, she falls back into memories of her own youth, when her life took a series of tragic turns as she struggled for independence and dealt with the end of her relationship with Ayas father. But as Miriams recollections of love and regret descend upon her, this woman who has spent nearly every day of her life in an emotional prison finds that her wounds slowly give way to healing and a tentative hopefulness.With the lyrical economy of poetry, asha bandele tells a powerful story that boldly confronts timely and troubling issues.

Daughter is an unforgettable portrait of one extraordinary woman and her journey -- from secrecy to openness, from the silence of isolation to the beauty of connection.
