Moods of Motherhood charts the inner journey of motherhood, giving voice to the often nebulous, unspoken tumble of emotions that motherhood evokes: tenderness, frustration, joy, grief, anger, depression and love. She explores the taboo subjects of maternal ambiguity, competitiveness, and the quest for perfection, offering support, acceptance, and hope to mothers everywhere. Though the story is hers, it could be yours. Compiled from posts written for her popular blog, Dreaming Aloud, her best-loved magazine columns and articles, and many other original pieces. This second edition is even fuller of Lucy's trademark searing honesty and raw emotions, which have brought such a global following of mothers to her work. Lucy H. Pearce is the mother of three children and four books including the #1 Amazon bestseller on creativity and motherhood - The Rainbow Way, and #1 menstruation book - Moon Time. Lucy's writing is gutsy, honest, touching, and very real. Her words leap off the page to reach right into the heart of the mothering life. Molly Remer, author Womanrunes Lucy's frank and forthright style paired with beautiful, haunting language and her talent for storytelling will have any parent nodding, crying and laughing along - appreciating the good and the bad, the hard and the soft, the light and the dark. A must-read for any new parent. Zoe Foster, JUNO magazine I laughed and cried all the way through this book, and identified with so much of it! Hugely recommended to all mothers! Rachael Hertogs, author Menarche: a journey into womanhood
