Strange Days Indeed
Edited by Lindsay Ashford, Rebecca Tope
Nobody told me there'd be days like these…
Motherhood is a strange country - you can't tell what it's going to be like until you get there and you have no idea how long the journey is going to be. In Strange Days Indeed women of all ages say what it was like for them.
These are the true stories of motherhood - from fears about the birth itself to the challenges posed by children when they're grown-up.
We hear from a pregnant priest, a politician's wife and a teenager who got pregnant while she was still technically a virgin. There are stories from grandmothers, stepmothers and women who have faced the trauma of an abortion. The many layers, from day-to-day fun to deep distress, make this a collection to read again and again.
