Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
"This book is important to every mother and daughter, and to every woman who wants to be one." MAYA ANGELOU

WHEN I MARRIED MY MOTHER, a national bestseller, is an unusual, unexpected love story. Jo Maeder was a high-energy, irreverent Z100 radio "ZJ" in New York City when a series of crises led her to do the unthinkable: leave New York for the Bible Belt- "Greensboring," North Carolina-to care for her estranged, eccentric "Mama Jo." What she thought would be some of the worst years of her life turned out to be some of the best. The same was true for her mother. Jo also discovered there's nothing boring about Greensboro. Though often rocky, this "marriage" was a triumphant success, leading Jo to repair a long-fractured family, smooth her rough edges, and find a new and vibrant life she never imagined.

Every eldercare situation is different but the emotions and decisions that need to be made are similar. This you'll-laugh-you'll-cry story has helped others navigate their own present or future "long goodbye" with an elderly loved one as well as the complex family issues that arise. Even those who have already lost a loved one have felt a cathartic release and clarity.

“This generous gift of a book explores the mystery of how doing the right thing can, in the end, become infinitely more.” Tommy Hays

This is an enhanced eBook of the original Da Capo Press hardcover edition. Bonus material includes author Q&A, Mama Jo's Favorite Cookie award-winning recipe, caregiving tips, discussion questions, and links to the book trailer and the short film "The Doll Dilemma" by Jacob Rosdail.
