    "Adventures in Motherhood" will make moms laugh

    Joan Wester Anderson is a veteran writer and veteran mother--distinctions which allow her to write with complete authority, and unflinching honesty, in her new book from Guideposts, "Moms Go Where Angels Fear to Tread." Subtitled "Adventures in Motherhood," Joan takes us on a forty-chapter foray through the high and low points of that diverse role, giving advice on everything from buying real estate ("'secluded area' means 'snowed in from October to April'") to establishing rules for surviving summer ("Anyone caught drinking an entire gallon of fruit juice during a 24-hour period shall pay his own hospital bill"--and if you think that's not possible, you don't have a teenage son!). Because Joan knows mothers' discretionary time comes in short spurts, her chapters are quick to read--usually three or four pages--and full of both sympathy and humor: "I couldn't have been prouder when my son sold 58 frozen pizzas for his school band's fundraiser--until I discovered that the pizzas had to be delivered, across a 12-block area, in 80 degree weather." Inspiring, entertaining, and uplifting, this is a great gift for girlfriends who have been there, done this, and lived to laugh about it.
