Stroud has hit the nail on the head in describing what life can be like with children, and the quiet struggles we have to swallow as a mother, for the sake of keeping the train moving.

This is really a very different book from the usual ‘motherhood is hard, but worth it’ theme, but Wild and Sleepless is a genre in its own right. However, as I started in on reading the book I was almost immediately taken in by Stroud's ability to describe everything so viscerally. She has a live in nanny and was able to just go off in a weekend away with her husband to rejuvenate her marriage. And it details how Clover, the mother of five children aged from one to seventeen, has navigated motherhood across two decades, both losing and finding herself.For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. The fact that the mother in the book and I have had a shared experience of raising children (in a way that I have rarely seen depicted in other books) was the main thing that kept me reading until the end. However, now I feel like I need to read a book that tells me just how wonderful motherhood is or when it isn't how to regain a sense of self !

You want to take the book in in small portions as you know it will end but you don't want it to end. We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed. Some beautiful writing and captures moments in motherhood so well, but overall I don’t relate to the author and I find some of it a bit needlessly melodramatic. At the same time the book is in places hilariously funny and I laughed out loud many times, and at other times I felt tears coming as I read of her experiences and emotions.
