Product Description

Four stories. Four mothers. Four crises. One great read.

Our notions of motherhood run the gamut from the mythical SuperMom to the dreaded Mommy Dearest. None is entirely true, as a mother's love is always unique, and all mothers are both perfect and flawed. Four mothers tells four sagas of mothers who each face a crisis, either real or perceived, in their parenting life. Change the way you see motherhood.

In The Beads, Iram is a mother coping with crisis -- a child in a coma after nearly choking to death -- when something happens that affects her entire outlook.

In Almost Perfect, we see our Mommy Dearest end of the spectrum with Bitsy. She wants her grandson, whom she is raising to be perfect, and with Bitsy, we are reminded, it's not just stepmothers who are wicked.

Tilda, the mother we meet in As Luck Would Have It, exudes luck from every pore. She would love to be the super mom who saves the day for her family, but she has one problem - her daughter's seeming lack of luck. In fact, Tilda's luck fails whenever her daughter is around. Tilda's solution to this problem could prove problematic.

Felicity is relishing her overbearing husband's absence on a business trip, when her Two-Day Break suddenly turns into a nightmare.

Also included in the collection is a bonus story, Lynch Party, about a mother who has a different perspective on what makes a great party activity.
