As a child, Laura Ingalls Wilder traveled across the prairie in a covered wagon. Her daughter, Rose, thought those stories might make a good book, and the two created the beloved Little House series. Sarah Breedlove, the daughter of former slaves, wanted everything to be different for her own daughter, A'Lelia. Together they built a million-dollar beauty empire for women of color. Marie Curie became the first person in history to win two Nobel prizes in science. Inspired by her mother, Irene too became a scientist and Nobel prize winner. Borrowed names is the story of these extraordinary mothers and daughters.

If you love biographies and know about these famous women then you will enjoy the verses. If you don't know much, then you might be happier with a detailed biography.

Fascinating poems tell the life stories of three pairs of moms & daughters: Laura Ingalls Wilder & Rose Wilder Lane, Madame CJ Walker and her daughter, and Marie Curie and her oldest daughter. Very interesting lives that separate and then return.
