A celebration of motherhood from the nineteenth century through the present day, as seen through American pop culture. There is nothing more American than Mom and apple pie.

Karbo -- In Praise of Difficult Women
From Frida Kahlo and Elizabeth Taylor to Nora Ephron, Carrie Fisher, and Lena Dunham, this witty narrative explores what we can learn from the imperfect and extraordinary legacies of 29 iconic women who forged their own unique paths in the world.

Smart, sassy, and unapologetically feminine, this elegantly illustrated book is an ode to the bold and charismatic women of modern history. Best-selling author Karen Karbo (The Gospel According to Coco Chanel) spotlights the spirited rule breakers who charted their way with little regard for expectations: Amelia Earhart, Helen Gurley Brown, Edie Sedgwick, Hillary Clinton, Amy Poehler, and Shonda Rhimes, among others. Their lives--imperfect, elegant, messy, glorious--provide inspiration and instruction for the new age of feminism we have entered. Karbo distills these lessons with wit and humor, examining the universal themes that connect us to each of these mesmerizing personalities today: success and style, love and authenticity, daring and courage. Being "difficult," Karbo reveals, might not make life easier. But it can make it more fulfilling--whatever that means for you.

Luna - Your Story is Your Power
In a very real sense we define our lives through our stories. Understand these stories, along with the motivations behind them, and we can positively change how our future unfolds. With this premise, Elle Luna, the author of The Crossroads of Should and Must, and the psychotherapist Susie Herrick present Your Story Is Your Power.

Beautifully designed and illustrated with Luna's watercolor artwork throughout, this inspiring and practical hands-on guide shows women how to uncover and understand their own stories in order to live more confident, unapologetic lives. Your Story Is Your Power is like a guided introspection, bringing us from the influences that created the way we think and engage with the world into our own personal stories. By using a series of psychologically astute exercises that focus on the reader's experience of being female, the reader will identify and understand how she is shaped by family, cultural stereotypes, personality type, personal myths, and more. And as in any successful therapy, the heart of this knowledge gained leads to a clearer sense of self and purpose, both in one's personal life and in the larger community of women.

Balanced with examples and stories of both authors, along with their shared sense of humor and measured outrage, Your Story Is Your Power is a personal, thoughtful, motivating, gorgeous gift to help every woman take control of her future.
