When did you forgive your mother?
That question is central to Regina van de Berg’s novel All the Women in Me, she launched with her own label Red Thunderbird Publishing.
The thoughtful journalist Michaela van der Geest struggles with the death of her mother. She knows no better than that she died when Michaela was fifteen. When she discovers that her mother is still alive and has abandoned her to pursue her artistic dreams in the United States, she stumbles upon a family secret that will turn their lives upside down.
Loving and complicated mother-daughter relationships
All Women in Me focuses on the choices of several generations of women. At their core they carry the stories of all women: the wild and the calm, the deceived and the dreamer, the tearful and the healing, the stumbling and the perfect woman.
Regina explores their loving and complicated mother-daughter relationships. She takes the reader from a Dutch living room to the prairies of America and gives them insight into the choices surrounding wanted, failed and deprived motherhood. Only when the main characters have recognised all the women in themselves, are no longer afraid to forgive and come to terms with the turns life can take unexpectedly, are they free to live life to the full.
Regina van de Berg (Den Helder, 26 February 1967) has been writing professionally since the beginning of her career as a journalist and copywriter, trainer and facilitator. Writing a novel was new territory.
Six years ago I stood at a crossroads. In my rucksack I had sheets of typed-up stories and a synopsis for a book in which I thought: either I go for it now and write the book, or it will remain a beautiful dream. I took the turning to write and became unstoppable.
Regina mapped out the route of writing, publishing, selling and promoting and published her book, a paperback, under her own label: Red Thunderbird Publishing. The book is available at all online bookstores for 21.95 euros. The e-book costs 12.50 euros.
