Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A freelance writer, Stark (What No One Tells the Bride) seeks to dispel the contradictory and unreasonable cultural expectations of mothers as well as the romanticized notions of motherhood that drive women to hate the experience secretly even as they adore their children. A series of group sessions with new mothers and the guilty secrets shared provided the seeds for this book. Out of them, Stark distills practical advice for women struggling with downsizing their own and society's expectations from pregnancy and birth through bonding and veteran parenthood. If there is an occasional New Age, "follow your bliss" ring to the text, it is still wise counsel from women who've been there. For larger psychology collections. briefly noted Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Finally an honest account!

    This book came just when I was feeling completely alone and disillusioned! I cannot tell you how it helped me to see that my despair and feelings of being overwhelmed as a first time mother of twins were completely normal! Finally, I felt someone has felt what I feel and has gotten through it! Thank you, Marg Stark!

    Outstanding and very necessary!!!

    I LOVED this book!!!There are few books on the market that help women to deal with the very challenging transition into Motherhood. I loved the honesty, wisdom and wit. Reading the book was very therapeutic. I loved the chapter entitled 'I Love My Child, But I Loathe Motherhood'. My daughter is almost 21 months old and I have had many moments where I have cried out 'I HATE being a mother - but I love my daughter'. Reading that chapter not only validated me but allowed me to let go of the guilt that I felt. Mothers need to know that they are not alone, that they don't have to be perfect, that they don't have to fulfill society's stereotypes about mothers - and this book helped me understand that. The last chapters were really helpful in allowing me to contemplate my happiness in a different way. My new happiness will probably come from re-setting many of my previous expectations and stereotypes. Thank you - Marg Stark!!!
