9780066213675: Guarding the Moon: A Mother's First Year

I feel as if I have been called on to guard the moon herself. A moon with dimples and a tiny crooked grin. How do you do this? How do you safely carry the moon around on this earth?

Acclaimed author Francesca Lia Block's meditation on the anxieties and elations of her first year as a mother are lovingly told in this treasure of a book. Block writes with raw and tender emotion about the joys and fears in her new life with her Silky-Milky, Girly-Swirl Moon Baby. As she watches her daughter grow and adjust to the world, the author reflects on how her own body and belief system have changed forever through the miracle of birth and parenting. With beautifully woven lyrical writing, Block reveals with immense grace and passion all the gifts her child has given her.

This is a love story -- from mother to daughter -- that reminds us that the deepest kind of love makes us vulnerable, joyous, triumphant, and new.
