Image of Mommies Behaving Badly

This powerful work of fiction, while centered on a working mother of three, will move men and woman of all ages and family status. It's emotional and gut-wrenching at times but also an excellent story about surviving tragic childhoods; marital bliss turned to misery and back again; and loving unconditionally. Readers will ache for the characters' losses, cry with their pain and rejoice in their successes.

With a promising book contract, three beautiful children and a move across the county for her husband's career, Ruby Salerno's life is one big mess of forward motion. But when her husband's past catches up to him and his business trips get longer, Ruby finds herself going it alone. She barely juggles potty training, summer camps, completing a second book and the publicity that comes with it, all the while discovering more about her new life, herself and her husband than she ever imagined.
