The Hummingbird’s Nest tells the story of a relationship between a mother, a writer in her 60s, and a daughter, an artist/lawyer in her early 30s who has also recently become a mother herself. Over the course of the story, the daughter is faced with multiple diagnoses of cancer and is given a poor prognosis. The daughter blames her mother for making her sick, while at the same time asking her mother to give her hope and the strength to go on. Through the telling of her own life story, the mother infuses her daughter with the understanding that, even though she is a cancer patient, she does have the strength to face her life as a wife, mother and professional woman. The hummingbird’s nest, which gives the book its title, is a metaphor for that place in our hearts where we feel safe despite the adversities that life throws in our path.
