The Mothers’ Group is the first novel by Australian author, Fiona Higgins. Six first-time mothers meet in a Mothers’ Group: the events of their first year of motherhood are narrated from six very different perspectives. Ginie is a high-powered lawyer, the family’s bread-winner; Made is the Balinese wife of an Australian engineer; Suzie is a single mum and trained masseuse, Miranda is married to a widower with a toddler, Pippa is a reticent woman with an enthusiasm for natural therapy; and Cara is friendly and empathetic with everyone. Despite a hesitant start, and their inherent diversity, they begin to socialise, sharing experiences and ideas and supporting one another. They face a variety of obstacles and manage to vault many hurdles, but the unexpected events of their Mother’s Day picnic will be their biggest challenge yet. Higgins touches on a myriad of topics, some relevant to early motherhood (lack of sleep, lack of partner support, in-law interference, use of nannies, congenital defects, sibling rivalry and peri-natal genital injury), others more general (racial intolerance, inequity of earning power, infidelity, poverty, incontinence and alcoholism). Higgins gives the reader a realistic plot, characters that are easy to identify with, and dialogue that can be heard in any café or park. The beachside suburbs and their culture are well drawn. The climax and the aftermath are no perfect Hollywood happily-ever-after, but totally believable. This is a brilliant debut novel. 4.5 stars
