Or will she remain a hopeless runaway mother, trapped by a longing for an irreversible escape?A heart-felt novel exploring motherhood, mental health, and the redeeming power of storytelling, sisterhood, and grace.———-“A touching novel of the importance of sharing the trials of motherhood. Holly excels at portraying the everyday frustrations of caregiving and the unique loneliness it can bring. Many mothers will identify with Jenna’s plight and find solace in its message.” —BookLife Reviews by Publisher’s Weekly”A lucid look at motherhood; immediately relatable. Aptly describes the chaos of raising children and the possibility of losing one’s sense of self. A moving exploration of motherhood’s pressures and expectations—one that any parent will find thought-provoking.” —BlueInk Review”Dramatically showcases how despair and loneliness can be relieved through connection with others. A touching, evocative depiction of the therapeutic imperative to share and support.” —Kirkus Reviews
