Tenia este libro es proceso de lectura hace varios días, la verdad su sinopsis no me llamaba la atención, comencé a leerlo para descansar mi mente de tanta lectura paranormal y erótica(es en serio) y paso lo que no creí que pasaría, me encanto.
Es un libro muy fácil de leer, que por lo menos a mí me engancho en su primer capítulo, Claire es una mujer muy valiente, a pesar de sus miedos, de sus lagrimas, de sus recuerdos, dedicada a su hija que es la locura y que me encanto, Georgia es un personaj...more

Touching but I expected something nice and operative at the end...

Sheila O'Flanagan is voor mij geen nieuwe schrijfster. Ik heb al meerdere boeken van haar gelezen en helaas vielen deze wel wat tegen. Moeder gaat op stap is een boek boordevol humor, emotie en situaties die je serieus aan het denken zetten. Ik vond dit boek leuk om te lezen, maar wederom is het boek niet helemaal top.
The cover of this book, and presumably the marketing, is deceptive. At a glance, it looks like fluffy chick-lit. It definitely is a women's interest story but it's on the more serious side of the spectrum, dealing with the aftermath of loss, many kinds of loss. It's not a dirge, by any means, but it's not a silly romp, either.
“IT” Just did not happen. ‘How Will I Know’ felt as if the story was being told in a monotone ~ no ups or downs. Not that I was looking for gratuitous sex, murder rape or mayhem – the tale flowed along to smoothly; just a little variety (excitement) would have enhanced the readability.
Solid - not soppy - about women approaching 40 with the real type of problems that women might actually have. Like how to help a teenage daughter when you've no idea what is going on out there, how to battle the actual problems (lost jobs) that people have.
Good fluff reading. LOVED the jag about men...the nice ones, handsome ones, etc. and how they see themselves in relation to the women who might be interested in them.

This is the sort of book that puts the liberation of women back 100 years. It was like watching a train wreck. You can't keep your eyes off it.
Quite nice book, if a little predictable. Sheila does have this knack of writing casually and sweetly that an everyday story becomes so charming!
Quite enjoyed this book. Not as chick lit as I thought it would be.Will be looking out for more of hers to read.

Loved it typical chick lit but has a sad background kept me turning the pages would recommend it
Very funny and interesting book. I couldn't put it down. A bit sad in the beginning though

As you can see, a Dubliner all my life. My parents owned a grocery shop in the Iveagh Markets, in the Liberties area of the city and I guess city blood runs through my veins.

As a child I enjoyed reading and telling stories and everyone thought that I end up in a job which had something to do with books and literature. But though I applied for a job in the library all of the job offers I got were i...more
