About the Author
Melanie Holmes is the mother of three, with 30+ years perspective. She has witnessed firsthand the confusion, pain, and anger of women who are viewed as dysfunctional or selfish because they pursued something other than motherhood for their lives, or they were unable to achieve motherhood by chance or circumstance. Her love for her daughter prompted her to interview/poll 200 women and write about this topic. Holmes wants to enlighten, not frighten; and support the view that motherhood should be viewed as a choice, not a mandate or foregone conclusion for women's lives. She doesn't advocate for or against motherhood; she advocates for women to be viewed as whole beings. Educating oneself about the realities of women's lives is important for everyone.
