9780446530743: Amanda Bright@home

With a college degree from an elite university, a top-level job at the N.E.A., a loving and successful husband, and two adorable children, Amanda Bright is ready to conquer the world. But when she decides to leave her career to be a stay-at-home mom, Amanda finds that her college degree, her professional wardrobe, and glamorous friends and connections are no preparation for her new life. Gone are the days of meetings and power lunches; Amanda's days are now filled with changing diapers, mopping up spills, and singing 'The Itsy, Bitsy Spider' over and over. While everyone else around her is on the fast track, it's getting harder for Amanda to even remember-or appreciate-why she left work in the first place. Mothers everywhere will laugh and cry along with Amanda as she experiences the daily trials of adjusting to this new life -and discovers that success isn't always measured in the workplace.

About the Author:

DANIELLE CRITTENDEN is a journalist and the author of What Our Mothers Didn't Tell Us, a book that resulted in Vanity Fair declaring her one of the most important new writers and thinkers about women. Her articles and essays have appeared in many publications, including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, and she is a frequent commentator on national TV and radio. She lives with her husband, author David Frum, and their three children in Washington, D.C.

From AudioFile:

Amanda Bright has two children, and this novel revolves around the fact that she stays home to take care of them herself. Through Amanda's interactions with others, we are exposed to all of society's views on parenthood, especially those on the stay-at-home mom. Laura Hicks is adept at performing a novel without becoming the novel; she provides subtle vocal changes and has a pleasing delivery. The book is easy to listen to, although at times it can be repetitive and a little maddening (Amanda wants to stay home; no, she doesn't; yes, she does. . . ), but that is a reflection of the character herself. Ultimately, this is a satisfying listen, as well as a timely one. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
