Crappy Pictures has sponsors. Sponsors do giveaways. Purple Leaves, Red Cherries is doing a giveaway! Yay!
So before I chatter on and on I’ll let Tania Elfersy tell you what her book (co-authored with her friend of 15 years, Andrea Katzman) is all about:
“Purple Leaves, Red Cherries: A Gift for Mothers with Short Stories, Journal & Toolkit” is an inspiring and critically acclaimed book for new moms and mothers of young children.”
They sent me a copy. I was struck by how beautiful it was. And then the kids got the flu (followed by me) and I forgot all about it. A week later, I was behind on life and drowning. I had no posts written, 638 unopened emails and nobody had clean underwear.
So naturally, I decided that the most important thing for me to do would be to read this book. Nobody really needs underwear. They just think they do.
I’m so glad I read it.
Purple Leaves, Red Cherries is not a parenting book. It is a mother book. It is written by a whole bunch of mothers who share seriously real stories. Each story is just one page. Which makes this book deliciously digestible for the audience it is intended for. (Um, mothers, in case that wasn’t blatantly obvious.)
It has little to do with kids even. It has everything to do with how every single aspect of our lives change once we become mothers. Sex. Careers. Our bodies. Expectations. Relationships. Are you listening yet?
Some of it may make you laugh and some of it may make you cry. And I guarantee that you will relate to many of their stories. I sure as hell did.
You can Download Two Free Chapters since me describing it is pretty pointless when you can actually read some for yourself.
