Critic's chart: mothers and daughters in literature

Kate Saunders, who reviews fiction for the Times (London), picked a critic's chart of "mothers and daughters in literature."

Her chart-topper:
Little Women Louisa May Alcott

Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy would have been nowhere without their “Marmee”, arguably literature's most perfect mother.
Read about the other books on Saunders' chart.
