Excerpts from reviews of this book:
From Frances Stewart, from West Union, WV :
"Perfect for every young mother you know. Young mothers will feel an immediate bond with this lovely author as she meets daily real-life challenges with humor, courage and grace. Of course, you may not totally agree with the way she has handled every situation. In much the same way, you won't totally agree with the way that you handle every situation. With children, it is a constant "think fast!" test.
Ms. Hohlbaum's honest look at the realities of parenting today is witty, painless, and fun. There is a chapter dedicated to Erma Bombeck. The writing here is reminiscent of this beloved author, and I am really looking forward to Ms. Hohlbaum's next book. …”
From Lata Budhrani from India:
'Diary of a Mother' is a vivid journey through the life of a mother. While most of the stories will have you grinning from ear to ear and shaking your head in despair or approval, there are quite a few incidents which touch your soul and teach you how important proper parenting is for your kids as well as yourself!
Christine Hohlbaum has provided readers worldwide with a companion for moms, a guide for would-be moms and a must-have addition to your bookshelf to cheer you up at any hour.
From Tracey Smith from France:
"Motherhood is a multi-faceted crystal. The experiences, tears and adventures are all represented on each cut face. "Diary of a Mother" by Christine Louise Hohlbaum presents 27 easily digestible chapters in this, her debut novel and pulls them together eloquently. Her 'pull-no-punches' approach will ride you through all the normal emotions associated with the best unpaid job in the world and grandmothers and new mums alike will empathise with a knowing smile. The words flow easily and the naked truth behind the sentiment shines through. The epilogue offers a touch of reality, not to be ignored. "Diary of a Mother" left me wanting to read another dozen chapters, that I could have easily woven into my hectic regime and while it may not be the thickest book on my shelf, it certainly is a treasured one."
