Christine Borzumato-Gainey publishes book on mother-daughter relationships

Deeply touched by the stories from mothers and daughters from all walks of life, Christine Borzumato-Gainey, a counselor in Elon's Counseling Services, and co-author Suzanne Degges-White, of the University of Mississippi, address major themes in this complicated relationship in their book, "Mothers & Daughters: Living, Loving and Learning over a Lifetime."

From infancy to end of life, mother and daughter relationships change and grow. Christine Borzumato-Gainey, a counselor in Elon's Counseling Services, and co-author Suzanne Degges-White, of the University of Mississippi, offer perspectives from different sociocultural groups in their book, "Mothers & Daughters: Living, Loving and Learning over a Lifetime."

In addition to the simple physiological and genetic bond that connects parents to their children, there is also a deeply rooted and often conflicting emotional bond that develops between mothers and daughters. Making sense of these relationships can be challenging and upsetting, rewarding and fulfilling, all at once.
