"In 1867, three women who achieved great success were born: writer Laura Ingalls Wilder, entrepreneur Madam C. J. Walker, and scientist Marie Curie. All three had complicated relationships with their daughters, relationships that Atkins explores in this unusual volume of poetry. Each section follows one daughter from young childhood to adulthood, sketching out the facts of her life, but creating impressions of the emotional lives beyond the facts."--Amazon.com.

If you love biographies and know about these famous women then you will enjoy the verses. If you don't know much, then you might be happier with a detailed biography.

Fascinating poems tell the life stories of three pairs of moms & daughters: Laura Ingalls Wilder & Rose Wilder Lane, Madame CJ Walker and her daughter, and Marie Curie and her oldest daughter. Very interesting lives that separate and then return.
