In 1984 two young mothers meet at a toddler group in Birmingham. As their friendship grows, they share with each other the difficulties and secrets in their lives: Joanne, a sweet, shy girl, is increasingly afraid of her husband. The lively, promising man she married has become hostile and violent and she is too ashamed to tell anyone. When her mother, Margaret is suddenly rushed into hospital, the bewildered family find that there are things about their mother of which they had no idea. Margaret was evacuated from Birmingham as a child and has spent years avoiding the pain of her childhood – but finds that you can't run from the past forever. Sooky, kind and good-natured, has already been through one disastrous marriage and is back at home living with her parents. But being disgraced is not easy. Her mother, Meena, refuses to speak to Sooky. At first her silence seems like a punishment, but Sooky gradually realizes it contains emotions which are far more complicated and that her mother may need her help. Meena has spent 20 years trying to fit in with life in Birmingham, and to deal with the conflicts within her between east and west, old ways and new. This is the story of two young women discovering the heartbreak of their mothers lives, and of how mothers create daughters – and learn from them.

This is a book about where to find them, when to keep them, why to break it off and how to lose them. It's a book that tackles such important questions as: How do you read between the lines to discern what's true and what's not? Should you fake orgasm? Is it okay to break up via voice mail? What if your kids don't like him? And what should you write in your on-line ad? We fervently believe this book will enable all single women to learn what we've learned, laugh along with us at our mistakes and thus have an easier time charting those uncharted waters on their way to new relationships. Mothers and daughters compare notes on all sorts of things, but few get to compare notes on the dating scene, let alone write a mother-daughter dating book together. We didn't plan things this way. I suddenly found myself widowed after 19 years of marriage and my daughter, Andi, became a divorcee after ten years of marriage. We both re-emerged as singles at times in our lives when we least expected to do so. We discovered over the years as we compared notes, soothed each other's egos, offered encouragement, and giggled uproariously over some of the funnier anecdotes our dating experiences have yielded that commiseration was a learning and healing experience and most important of all great fun. We decided to broaden the circle and interview our friends two very different generations of dating women and we found we had all reached many similar conclusions, namely that there are few problems that can't be rectified, that women are too hard on themselves in dealing with men, and that it's far better to laugh than to take these things too seriously. Kiss and Tell: Tales by a Mother and Daughter is filled with our stories and newfound wisdom. We look at how children fit into the dating picture for younger women. Is it possible to find a man who not only loves you but also adores your children? And we look at the discomfort older women might feel about suddenly dating again after forty plus years of marriage. Invaluable dos and don'ts of dating are included throughout the book

“Readers [of Side by Side] will come away with a rich perspective and a renewed ability to connect head and heart so that every mother/daughter will have a richer, more satisfying relationship.” —Dr. Drew Pinsky, host of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Renowned family and child psychiatrist Dr. Charles Sophy’s Side by Side offers a proven strategy to restore loving and effective communication between mothers and daughters. Dr. Sophy, Medical Director for the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and regular guest on the Today Show and Larry King Live, has found that the most promising—and problematic—family dynamic is the one between mother and daughter. Dr. Sophy developed the program presented in Side by Side in response to this realization. In the vein of Deborah Tannen’s You’re Wearing That? and Christiane Northrup’s Mother Daughter Wisdom, Side by Side offers valuable advice for mothers and daughters everywhere.
