About the Author
Dorothy C. Bass is a practical theologian, historian, mother, grandmother, and stepmother. During twenty-five years as director of the Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith, a Lilly Endowment project supporting the renewal of Christian theology and life, she wrote, edited, or coedited more than a dozen books. She has spoken widely on vocation and spirituality.

"The guidance Bass offers will serve women at every stage of what is not only a social role but a vocation that offers both new challenges and new avenues of grace." --Marilyn McEntyre, author of Caring for Words in a Culture of Lies and Dear Doctor: What Doctors Don't Ask, What Patients Need to Say

"Dorothy Bass's honesty, vulnerability, and wisdom open a window into the world of stepmothering, a gift to those who know this calling intimately and those who are called to grow in compassion. This book is for anyone who longs to understand the complexity and beauty of the ties that bind us." --Laura Kelly Fanucci, author of Everyday Sacrament: The Messy Grace of Parenting

"This astute book will empower readers to transform difficult circumstances into spaces of compassion and grace. There is simply nothing else out there like it and no better gift to give a stepmother." --Bonnie Miller-McLemore, author of In the Midst of Chaos: Caring for Children as Spiritual Practice and Also a Mother: Work and Family as Theological Dilemma
