Statistics say that one in 10 women has no intention of taking the plunge into motherhood. Nobody's Motheris a collection of stories by women who have already made this choice. From introspective to humorous to rabble-rousing, these are personal stories that are well and honestly told. The writers range in age from early 30s to mid-70s and come from diverse backgrounds. All have thought long and hard about the role of motherhood, their own destinies, what mothering means in our society and what their choice means to them as individuals and as members of their ethnic communities or social groups.Van Luven, Lynne is the author of 'Nobody's Mother Life Without Kids', published 2006 under ISBN 9781894898409 and ISBN 1894898400.
