Advance Praise for Her Mother’s Daughter

“There is a delicious fictional quality to this true-life story that I found riveting. In Carroll’s deft telling, the book is a kind of resurrection of a family . . . I think I loved Her Mother’s Daughter most for the devotion that Linda Carroll has for her unusual family through decades of separations and unconventional journeys.”
—Terry Ryan, author of The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio

“Looking backward and forward in time, this haunting memoir tells the story of a young woman’s journey to finding herself, her birth mother, and her daughter, Courtney Love. The candor and power of these pages illuminates the difficulties of all mother-daughter relationships, but offers a rare glimpse into that elemental relationship when it is shadowed by the temperamental features of early-onset bipolar disorder. Linda Carroll has grit and grace, and writes like her mother’s daughter.”
—Demitri F. Papolos, M.D., and Janice Papolos, authors of The Bipolar Child
