About the Book
Mary Yuill writes with passion, love, and a unique creativity. Four My Daughters is her first delightful collection of poems and photography from the 1950's to the 1980's. After compiling these selections from her many journals, she discovered that, when assembled, they became an accidental diary for her four daughters.
Four My Daughters holds appeal for all readers. Everyone will find laughter, truth, and compassion in these pages.
What people have said about Four My Daughters...
“Your book is a treasure. Your sentiments, thoughts, and love so genuine, so well said. You captured it for everyone, way beyond your immediate family."
“I have to say, I think the name of the book is brilliant for starters, and from tearing up at “Margot’s Soft Present” to laughing out loud at “A Tassel Hat,” it’s a truly wonderful book from the front cover picture to the final boob shot.”
“I am so impressed by your book, been moved to laughter and tears."
“Your book is making the rounds of our women’s group.”
