Adult Conversation

Adult conversation - Bibliophile.gr reviewWhen April started a family with her husband, she decided that she wanted to be a full-time mom. Fun, right? But what happens when you’ve miscalculated?

What if a toddler and a middle grader leave absolutely no room in your life for yourself? And with a husband that’s always working late, how do you find a balance?

Desperate and probably at the end of her wits, April will try to find a solution to what she’s feeling. Therapy sessions, going back to her business, and a spontaneous friendship that leads to an impromptu Vegas trip are only the tip of the iceberg.

April is changing. And while she’s doing that, the world around her seems to be changing, too. And, luckily, the transition is very interesting and, at points, hilarious for the reader.

Adult Conversation is an easy-to-read, fast-paced book. But make no mistake, it’s still a story that gives us a very interesting perspective on motherhood, family dynamics, struggling and getting the help you need, as well as setting boundaries. Brandy Ferner breaks the widespread notion that full-time moms have it easier, and shows us how couple dynamics shift when children come into the scene.

A lovely book to read, highly recommended for everyone – fathers, especially!
