Book review: Because I Love You

BOOK: Because I Love You
AUTHOR: Barbara Toner
PUBLISHER: Allen & Unwin Aust
RRP: $29.99

 

WHAT daughter doesn't need advice? What mother can't give it?

Whether she's 18 or 81, a daughter can always benefit from a second opinion on the condition of her soul, her heart, her head, her hair, her cleavage.

Also, her loves, her hates, her dreams, her debts, her teeth and sexting.

Barbara Toner has written a beautifully presented book which offers advice from a mother to daughter.

She writes a funny, witty, wise guide to dealing with life's eternal dilemmas.

Her writing can sometimes seem condescending and it's not really clear whether the book is aimed at daughters or mothers, although it is mentioned it is a heartfelt address by Barbara to her three daughters.

Overall, it's a lovely book to read and something every mother and daughter can relate to.
