Love, Longing, and Liberation
Motherlines reveals how a woman’s true spiritual growth is dependent on the love of others who witness, encourage and ensure her possibility
When she was twenty, Patricia Reis’s mother asked, “What about your spiritual life?” Years later, this question drives her midlife quest to reconcile the desires of her body with the mandates of her spirit.
Motherlines is a candid and compelling story of sex with men and with women, of celibacy, illegal abortions, making vows and breaking them, dreams, body wisdom, creative ambition, and inspiring relationships with memorable characters.
This unflinching memoir illuminates the unvarnished truth of growing up female in the 1980’s, a rich and fertile period in American history when gender roles were undergoing a revolution, a time that includes feminism, the women’s spirituality movement and liberation theology.
