Praise

“A suspenseful and compulsively readable domestic drama that’s anything but ordinary. Smart and timely, The Other Mother is sure to keep the ‘mommy wars’ debate raging.” —Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fool Me Once and Home

“A wonderful, compelling read for every mom torn by real (or imagined) tension with other mothers who’ve made different choices about working or staying home with kids. The Other Mother brings alive the reality of each mother’s internal war.” —Leslie Morgan Steiner, editor of Mommy Wars

“A finely wrought domestic drama, The Other Mother draws out the intimacies of two women poised against each other’s yearnings. Gwendolen Gross writes with the kind of nuance and grace that fire every moment of this timely story.” —Amy Scheibe, author of What Do You Do All Day?

“Gwendolen Gross’s absorbing novel manages to engage all the contradictions of motherhood, marriage, and friendship–satisfaction/fulfillment, safety/danger, significance/triviality–and to give them an honest and often very funny airing. Her characters may be desperate housewives but she doesn’t mock them and, with a perfect ear for the sound of young mothers thinking and feeling their way along, she writes too richly to take sides in the stand–off between the women who go to work and the ones who stay at home.” –Rosellen Brown, author of Half a Heart and Before and After
