“Every woman extends backward into her mother and forward into her daughter.”
Every mother looms large in the life of a daughter, no matter what kind of mother she’s been. Imprint and Inheritance, the Sequel to Breathing Water, will tell the story of Anna Marie coming to understand how much her mother, Colleen, and her grandmother, Fiana, have laid claim to her life. Anna Marie loves her mother, but realizes something important has been missing as she watches her own daughters grow. Although Anna Marie strives to create what she believes to be a unique identity, daughters cannot flee the genetic, behavioral and environmental inheritance of their mothers. Imprint and Inheritance is a story of the unavoidable connection between generations, courageous mothers who do their best with what life gave them, and daughters who try to love them as they are.
