really liked it 4.0  ·  Rating Details ·  6 Ratings  ·  0 Reviews
Supermom is at the end of her rope. "Maternal Desire" shows mothers who work a full-time job and take care of their family that there is another way. The author explores maternal enjoyment as she does maternal anxiety, and offers not just understanding but the exhilaration of seeing a universal frustration discussed clearly for the first time.
Published June 27th 2009 by Little, Brown and Company (first published March 22nd 2004)
