Moods of Motherhood charts the inner journey of motherhood, giving voice to the often nebulous, unspoken tumble of emotions that motherhood evokes: tenderness, frustration, joy, grief, anger, depression and love. Lucy H. Pearce explores the taboo subjects of maternal ambiguity, competitiveness, and the quest for perfection, offering support, acceptance, and hope to mothers everywhere. Though the story is hers, it could be yours.
This fully-updated second edition features 23 new pieces including posts written for her popular blog, Dreaming Aloud, her best-loved magazine columns and articles, and many other original pieces. This is a book full of Lucy's trademark searing honesty and raw emotions, which have brought a global following of mothers to her work.
Lucy’s frank and forthright style paired with beautiful, haunting language and her talent for storytelling will have any parent nodding, crying and laughing along – appreciating the good and the bad, the hard and the soft, the light and the dark. A must-read for any new parent. Zoe Foster, JUNO magazine
