Publisher's Summary

Motherhood is full of little highs: the smell of a newborn baby's head, the feeling of a small hand holding yours, the infectious sound of laughter, first words, first steps, the first day at school, endless tiny but significant hints of the person your child is to become. 

But motherhood is not without its lows either: tears and tantrums (your child's and your own), fears, self-doubt, sleepless nights, and that's not to mention the mum fails. 

One minute your heart is bursting with love and pride as you watch your family grow, the next you are practically on your knees with exhaustion, overwhelmed by the never-ending to do list. Motherhood is a roller coaster. 

In Letters on Motherhood, Giovanna Fletcher shares hilarious and heartwarming stories of her own family life and reflects on the lessons she has learned about the deeper universal themes of parenting that are familiar to mums everywhere.

Excellent Listen and so relatable.

The letters are heart warming and great for new mums or mum's who just want to reminisce about when there children were younger. Also the care the author has for her readers shines through .

Made me, smile, laugh, cry and love

Letters on Motherhood made me smile, laugh and cry uncontrollably and made me love my little Hugo even more than I already did.
down to earth and easy to connect with has made me pick up a note book and start writing to my son Hugo for him to read when he is older and just wish that I started this from when he was baby.
A truly amazing book
