I am Planta: On the Line. This is THECOMMENTARY.CA.

Rona Maynard joins me now to discuss her book, surprisingly her first, My Mother’s Daughter: A Memoir. It is a candid and absorbing book about the struggles of being a daughter, a sister, and a mother. From her mother’s giant shadow-she being the noted writer Fredelle Maynard, her father’s alcoholism, and the struggle of being called a bad parent by her son’s teacher’s, to battling chronic depression-my next guest the former editor of Chatelaine spares little. The book is published by McClelland and Stewart and retails for $34.99. Her website is at www.ronamaynard.com, and definitely worth a visit. I am pleased to welcome Rona Maynard to the Planta: On the Line program; Good morning, Ms. Maynard.
