Each year, every year, new mothers face all sorts of challenges in their mothering - some expected, and many entirely surprising. Thinking about balancing children, life, relationships and work, the perennial question women pose is 'Can I have it all?' - but sometimes the truer question is, 'Can I get through this?' Discussing with eleven extraordinary women what it means to be a mother, Jessica Rowe reveals the obstacles they encountered along the way, the joys and the heartache, the myths and the realities. Featuring exceptionally honest conversations with these fascinating women - Lisa McCune, Heidi Middleton, Elizabeth Broderick, Wendy Harmer, Collette Dinnigan, Maggie Tabberer, Tina Arena, Quentin Bryce, Nova Peris, Gail Kelly, Darcey Bussell and a chapter from Jessica herself - the ultimately joyous and shared nature of the motherhood journey is revealed. With humour and great humanity, Love. Wisdom. Motherhood. is inspirational.
