About this deal
This book brings a sense of comfort, of community, acceptance and recognition that can really help in those low moments and reinforce those high moments too.

It felt like a “friend” I could turn to at 3am in the middle of a breakdown when no one else would understand. Motherhood and parenthood in general is the most beautiful and challenging thing I've ever done and it was refreshing to relate so heavily to another so much and to know I'm not alone.
Whether you laugh or cry you will put it down feeling less alone and having made a friend in a book .
