Looking for some light reading while you swan around doing nothing on Mother's Day? Ok, it's unlikely you'll be doing nothing, but here's a few book recommendations for you anyway.
'Dying for Cake' (2003) is also by an Australian author and mother, Louise Limerick. Not dissimilar to 'The Mother's Group', as it tells the stories of a group of women who have been meeting for coffee since they met through their children's preschool. But it is much darker than 'The Mother's Group'. While I enjoyed both I found the writing stronger in this one. Both books articulate much that is unspeakable for mothers - the loneliness, the depression, the self doubt - and it is good to see that being addressed in literature.
