A Single Mother
A single mother, torn between protecting her only child or revealing herself fully to the people she loves most, Roberta finds herself at war with conflicting loyalties, the increasing betrayal by her own body, the confused love she feels for her oldest friend and a trauma from her past that casts a deep and possibly permanent shadow not only over her own life but over the legacy she will bestow upon her son. Portraying the most intense and even shameful moments of motherhood, and the things we leave unsaid even to those we want most to hear them, Jessica Treadway’s novel is also a celebration of one woman’s private reckoning with the source of her life’s most profound pain – as well as its greatest pleasure. Her writing has been featured in the Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Glamour and HuffPost.
