Adult Conversation: A Novel

April is a thoughtful but sarcastic mother of two who tries her best to be a caring, connected mom in a middle-class culture where motherhood has become relentless. April rages at modern motherhood’s impossible pressures, her husband’s “Dad privilege,” and her kids’ incessant snack requests. She wants to enjoy motherhood, but her idealist vision and lived experience are in constant conflict with one another. Is she broken―or is motherhood?

Finally! Thank you for just saying it like it is! Thank you for the much needed authenticity, transparency, and for your willingness to be vulnerable during a time when NOTHING is “as it seems.”
