Expanded from a speech given to her young friend Ally's graduation class, Maria speaks as a wiser, more experienced girlfriend, but also as both the daughter of a mother whose advice she still seeks and as the mother of the daughters for whom she wishes a fulfilling and happy life. In this stirring and inspiring guide, Maria talks to young women about how to find abundance and emotional richness, and how not to overlook life's most special gifts. Her 10 rules offer a firm grasp on what's really important in life.
Thoughtful, compassionate, and filled with love, And One More Thing Before You Go... will make every mother cry and every daughter stop and think about her mother's words.
"Sweet and inspiring." (Publishers Weekly)
While I thought Ms. Shriver could have done a better job of reading her own work, I did find this an entertaining listen. I have a daughter who will be graduating from high school in June, and I have a bought a copy of this book for her and many of her friends. It never hurts to remind our teenaged girls to be true to themselves as they leave the nest and head off into the next chapter of their lives.
