THE OTHER MOTHER, a 416-page hardcover "rememoir," is the true story of a TV reporter and the deep bond she forges with a woman four times her age, a bond that changes her life forever...

Byrne and Duncan Miller do not blend into the beautiful background that is Beaufort, South Carolina. She is an 82-year-old modern dance pioneer from Manhattan who started out on the burlesque stage during the Great Depression. He is a pipe-smoking, frustrated novelist and one of the original Mad Men of Madison Avenue.

The author stumbles onto the story of their love and quickly becomes one of Byrne's "collected daughters." Their friendship is a dance between love and madness, loyalty and truth, and speaks to anyone who has ever needed and cherished the love of an "Other Mother."

Bruce shares the wisdom of Byrne's life through cheeky quotes called "Womenisms," such as, "Every woman should have at least one affair. It builds confidence."
