Mothering is an awesome, taxing and incredibly rewarding job. In this book, Anna Melchior seeks to help mothers in their hugely important role by providing spiritual insight drawn from her Christian faith, and practical advice drawn from her own experience.
The reader will find here a radical model of mothering. The author shows how mothers can imbue their everyday tasks with meaning and purpose, demonstrates that mothering supports society, and urges society to support mothers in their mothering.
'Anna Melchior's solid and profound book rewards the [...] reader with a depth and wisdom that gives mothering its real place.'
Steve Biddulph (Psychologist and best selling author of The Secret of Happy Children and Raising Boys)
'Mothering is a tour de force [...] Melchior brings formidable intellect, humour, spiritual depth and joy to her job.'
Sarah Johnson (Journalist and author of Daring to be Different: Being a Faith Family in a Secular World and The Christian Parents' Toolkit)
ANNA MELCHIOR is married with four children and lives in Manchester. She studied at Dartmouth College, USA, and at Oxford University, where she gained a DPhil in social anthropology.
