A taste of the stories:
The most sophisticated thing she had done all week was eat dark chocolate…
She began sobbing…she couldn’t figure out how to get to the bathroom with an eight-pound baby attached to her breast.
She sank into the scent of her baby and found peace.
She imagined a return to perky glory!
I nodded along …. I teared up …. I giggled …. I felt like she was writing my story …. I commiserated …. I cried …. I related …. I felt like her….You see, I love this book because I can see myself in each of these women and their stories.
