This luminous, heartfelt novel spans more than a hundred years in the lives of three remarkable women -- lives shaped by the epic sweep of history and linked through a century of great love and great loss.

As Anna holds vigil at her mother's bedside, she longs for reconciliation -- not just with her mother, Johanna, but with her grandmother Hanna, a woman she never really knew.

Determined to piece together the fragments of her past, Anna sifts through tattered letters, cracked diaries, and old photographs and searches for answers to questions that have haunted her for a lifetime. What was it like for Hanna when she married a miller and raised an illigitimate child in a staunch, rural community? What drove Johanna, once a fiery revolutionary, to settle down and become a housewife? And why did the ties binding Anna to her mother and grandmother drive all three apart -- only to bring them back together again?

Rich in insight, Hanna's Daughters is an unforgettable story, exploring the volatile ties of mothers and daughters.
