Book Review: Surprised by Motherhood
Honestly, I was surprised by this book (yes, pun intended). I've written a few times for Lisa-Jo's "Five-Minute Friday" blogger community full of wonderful, talented, creative women. Many of them are very poetic and have an amazing way with words. However, sometimes it seems the message they are telling gets lost in the beauty of telling it. I really thought that would happen with this book. But, like I said, I was surprised. Lisa-Jo did a wonderful job of telling her story in an adjective saturated way without losing me as an interested reader. I found myself enjoying the re-telling of very personal experiences and perspectives on becoming and being a mother.
