Award-winning journalist Michele Weldon presents a powerful antidote to the harried unmarried mother stereotype during this beguiling memoir of elevating 3 sons on my own within the face of melanoma, an bold profession, and the shadow of her ex. Untethered from a probably idyllic existence with a good-looking yet abusive legal professional husband, Weldon relates the demanding situations and triumphs of the years that her divorce as she maneuvers via a sophisticated lifetime of lengthy day-by-day commutes, radiation remedies, helping the men’ all-consuming highschool wrestling careers, and attempting to mitigate their damage and resentment at an absent father. by means of turns funny and heartbreaking, Weldon describes dealing with her fears and screw ups in truth, guided by way of a trust within the energy of staying calm, doing one’s most sensible, and soliciting for aid. She offers a sleek instance of the way a unmarried mom, and her teenagers, can be triumphant while others—neighbors, relations, academics, and thus an important highschool wrestling coach—step in to fill the void and she or he can remain the path with logic and dutiful love.
