To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Another brilliant read...I have to stop reading a book a night but her writing and story telling is so incredible and her protagonists are so real that I can not put her books down until I am finished.
A compelling story of lineage and postpartum blues. This story is told through the voice of a new mother , Majella who is doubting herself and her ability to parent. She feels crazy and even acts crazy at times. She finds an old diary of her great great grandmother and the rollercoaster gets to new heights. The best part is how this young woman discovers her own strength and how she comes from a long line of incredibly strong women. Takes every mother back to the birth of their own children and the miracle of family.
This is another one of her outstanding books. The book portrays the famine in Ireland in 1846 and 1847 as well as the stories of adjusting to becoming a new Mom in today's world. It raises various issues about post partum depression, bonding with your baby and your own mother, and adjusting to staying at home after you have worked outside of the house. Very well written
