When will my order arrive?

Beth Ann Fennelly, writing to a newly pregnant friend, goes beyond the nuts and bolts or sentimentality of other parenting literature, in letters that range in tone from serious to sisterly, from lighthearted to downright funny. Some answer specific questions; others muse about the identity shift a woman encounters when she enters Mommyland. This book invites all mothers to join the grand circle of giving and receiving advice about children.

Review quote

"Captures the doubts and frustrations as well as the joys of motherhood...Her missives are alternately moving, funny, and practical, with an unusual honesty about just how hard it is to be a young mother." -- Margo Hammond "My wife and I read Great with Child in the middle of a particularly sleepless and challenging time in our daughter's life; we found ourselves instantly calmed and reassured... A wise and deeply honest book-one that any parent or expecting parent needs to read." -- Dean Bakopolous, author of Please Don't Come Back from the Moon "I read Great with Child in one sitting, crying and laughing throughout. Beth Ann Fennelly has written an instant classic, filled with humor and wisdom." -- Lee Smith, author of On Agate Hill and The Last Girls "A poetic and heartfelt guide to pregnancy and young motherhood... A moving and magical read."
