Happily Even After

This week's book is the third in a series called the Sassy Sistahood. The subtitle on this one is intruiging...marriage, motherhood, and a monster-in-law! The back cover starts with 'Superwoman doesn't live here' -- as you probably know, she doesn't live at my house, either!

The main character, Tracey, is a new mom trying to juggle her life, the baby, her husband's difficulties at work, and a new church! In the midst of it all, she has a mother-in-law who acts like the queen of the universe. Tracey struggles through some difficult self-esteem issues, fights for her marriage, and finally comes out on top in a way she never imagined. The book has plenty of funny and poignant moments, and the story leaves you cheering for Tracey and her family.

About the Book:
Superwoman doesn't live here!

I marry a gorgeous executive, have a baby, lose all the weight (most of it), and move to a fine house in the suburbs with a welcoming new church. Wait...did I say welcoming?

One teeny waaah! and new mothers and their crying babies are exiled to a separate room. At least there's some enlightening conversation. Like about my husband and issues I didn't even know about!

And then there's my aptly named mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth, who can't stand me.

I'm about to lose my mind! So it's high time for a visit to the Sassy Sistahood for some much-needed advice about men, marriage and motherhood!

The Sassy Sistahood: They get by with a little help from their friends.
