From Publishers Weekly:

The author, a stepmother herself as well as a teacher and therapist, has a keen appreciation of the difficulties stepmothers have in coming to terms with children they did not bear and with their awkward parenting role. Building on her own experience, and that of stepmothers she interviewed for the book, Prilik has written a sensible guide to what such women can expect. She outlines the ways in which they can learn to relate better to their new charges and, perhaps most importantly, find comfort and a sense of solidarity by reading how others face the same problems. Prilik is sometimes over-sentimentalher saccharine opening, for example, hardly gives an idea of the no-nonsense briskness that is to followbut she knows her subject well, has thought about it carefully, and conveys sound advice and information.

From Library Journal:

Prilik, a teacher, therapist, and stepmother herself, sees "the experience of stepmotherhood to be deeply and personally rewarding for many women, requiring the testing of feelings about family relationships and the personal endurance that leave many women feeling stronger and more self-assured." Although she is not unaware of the problems, she explores such issues as determining one's place in the new family, dealing with the children's biological mother, and managing stress from an especially confident and upbeat perspective. While Karen Savage and Patricia Adams's The Good Stepmother ( LJ 5/1/88) achieves greater insight, this work may also be a worthwhile addition to public libraries. Marcia G. Fuchs, Guilford Free Lib., Ct.
