Mom's the Word by Marilynn Griffith is fun mom-lit with a faithful twist. Karol Simon's life has shrunk from being a successful business woman with dreams of being a writer to being a frazzled wife and mother. When her best friend Hope moves from next door, and the new neighbor is a skinny, type-A career woman named Dyanne, Karol is angry at not only the loss of Hope, but at her husband's betrayal in sending her away. To make up for it, her hubby gives her 21 days of vacation from motherhood: no
decent Christian fiction for moms who don't feel appreciaTed.
This book was okay but not fantastic. I had a hard time getting involved with the plot and the characters although I can't put my finger on why. It may have been that I kept reading in busy places where I was distracted or maybe because I couldn't identify with the characters; I've always wanted to be a mom and love being a mom.
The main characters are too depressed for me. They really need counseling. Didn't get very far with this one.
