The Motherhood Collective
12 Powerful and Inspiring Stories from Mothers Around the World
Angela Kelly loved being a mother.
But she often felt defeated and out of her depth. Sensing that she’d missed some kind of maternal memo, she set out to connect with other women. She wanted to know one thing: How were they navigating the seemingly unnavigable waters of the Motherhood Strait?
From post-World War 2 Greece and earthquake-ravaged El Salvador, to modern-day Singapore, Canada and Australia, The Motherhood Collective brings together diverse tales of devotion, heartache and ultimately, survival.
Laced with warmth and authenticity, this book explores themes of politics, religion, mental health, domestic violence, immigration, same-sex marriage, disability and divorce.
Inspirational, funny and poignant, these stories will stay with you long after you’ve read the last page.
