About Dara and the book:

Dara’s story:

When Dara Kurtz was twenty-eight years old, her mother died of cancer. This loss, and the loss of her grandmothers, was so painful that for decades she was afraid to re-read their letters to her, which she kept in a ziploc bag at the bottom of a drawer. Meanwhile, she went on with her life as a wife and mother—and a cancer survivor. One day, longing for contact with the strong women who had loved and raised her, she re-read the letters. They brought back beautiful family memories and taught her many life lessons; they caused her to reflect on the priceless love between mothers and daughters and how wisdom and traditions can be passed on from one generation to the next. Dara’s story inspires us to strengthen the bonds between mothers and daughters, to remember family traditions, to let go of the pain of loss, and to make the most of each day of our lives.
