More About This Title The Mothers' Group
The Mothers' Group tells the story of six very different women who agree to regularly meet soon after the birth of their babies. Set during the first crucial year of their babies' lives, the story tracks the women's individual journeys—and the group's collective one—as they navigate birth and motherhood as well as their shifting romantic relationships Each woman strives in her own way to become the mother she wants to be, and finds herself becoming increasingly reliant on the friendship and support of the members of the group. Until one day an unthinkably shocking event changes everything. This is an unflinching and compelling portrait of the modern family in all its complexity and intensity: love, sex, and marriage, and all the joys and tensions of raising children in an increasingly complicated world. Moving, provocative, tender, and utterly gripping, The Mothers' Group will draw you in and never let you go.
