Between Interruptions: Thirty Women Tell the Truth&hellip by Key Porter Books Limited
My husband got this book from the library as something I might want to read. I stopped reading another book I was in the middle of, and couldn't get enough of this book. It's journeying back to the early days of motherhood (our daughter is now almost 2 yrs old) and the conflicting feelings that went with it--this time articulated to the last detail by strangers.

What a treasure. Highly recommended to moms and moms-to-be.

This book is valuable for new immigrants to Canada. It arms one with so much must-know information, it is confidence-building. The writer gets to the point quickly and tells the real score on many financial products and services. It reads easy. Highly recommended.
