The objective of the paper is to study how mother and daughter are emotionally attached in Marita Golden’s Long Distance Life.  She vividly portrayed Naomi, an ambitious mother and Esther, her daughter. Motherhood created an awkward challenge to African American women under the slave regime. The condition did not permit mothers the opportunity and freedom to take care for their children or execute their biological role as caregivers and mothers to their children, and above all their female children. It had very devastating consequences on the psyche of the women. This paper also focuses the role of a mother in a daughter’s life.


Keywords: Mother-daughter, black women, civil war, identity.
