Like the author, my mom was not the best of mothers. This, coupled with the message our culture gives women of mine and Ms. Walker's age.. that we should have careers and college degrees and sit back feeling completely fulfilled, even if childless. I don't think I could have identified more with this book. I read it while pregnant. Much of the book was also written while the author was pregnant and thinking through all these psychological issues... trying to wrestle with being a mom and what that will mean for her and how it doesn't diminish her, it builds her up. I loved this book so much I wrote a personal note to the author upon finishing it. I highly recommend the book to any single mothers, pregnant women defying what career pressures around them suggest they should be doing with their bodies, and moms struggling with how to become a mom while having never had the best role model growing up.
