    depressing

    I was having a hard time with being a stepmom and hoping for some inspiration and coping tools but instead the book just reinterated that it's a really bad position for anyone to be in. Very depressing and disappointing!!!! What's the point of reading this? Luckily I've found some other ways of getting to a good space about the whole situation. Maybe I should write a book.

    This Book Will Save Your Marriage

    Practical advice to new stepmothers who find themselves overwhelmed and unhappy in their situation. I can't recommend this book enough, especially to a newly married woman with no children of her own. This book will give you hope, courage and inspiration!

    If you are a stepmom, you must read it!

    It felt so good to go through this book's pages. Once I started reading it, I couldn´t stop, I found myself reflected within those pages... and is good to know you are not alone in this stepmothering adventure (so hard, but rewarding as well). Hopefully every stepmom could read it at early stage of their stepparenting process.
