Review:

Publishers Weekly Historically minded readers have plenty of choices, too. Working in the same vein as in her We Goddesses: Athena, Aphrodite, Hera, Doris Orgel brings an imaginative, feminist slant to Greek mythology in My Mother's Daughter: Four Greek Goddesses Speak, illus. by Peter Malone. Here she finds an approach virtually guaranteed to interest girls-she gives voice to mother-daughter pairs, Leto and Artemis, Demeter and Persephone, allowing each speaker to offer her own perspective on shared experiences.  School Library Journal Four Greek goddesses-Leto, Artemis, Demeter, and Persephone-tell their stories. The familiar tales are retold with a decidedly female slant-they are all about women as mothers and daughters, revealing the strength and importance of those relationships. From the goddesses' point of view, men are mainly violent braggarts, serving as backdrops and occasionally moving the plots along. Though Orgel's characters do come to life, the storytelling is stilted, and the endings seem abrupt. The book does include a handy glossary of names and places, with helpful pronunciation, and a good list of sources. Its tone may strike a chord with mythology fans, but this title will be a hard sell for most readers.
