Its a momentous day in the lives of high school graduates and their parents, and during this transitional time, parents emotions include everything from anxiety to hope, guilt to pride, fear to relief. In Shes Leaving Home, author Connie Jones chronicles two year in her own life, from the days when her daughter, Cary, fielded bids from more than a hundred colleges to her first year as a student at Smith College in Massachusetts. A story of spiritual journey and growth, the intimate, journal-like essays perfectly capture one mothers love and letting go of a daughter as she transforms into an adult. Shes Leaving Home is a personal memoir that parents will relate to in the same way readers responded to Anne Lamotts Operating Instructions: A Journal Of My Sons First Year.
