Otherhood: Modern Women Finding A New Kind of Happiness

It is not an easy subject to talk about. But I know that so many single woman can relate to this book and its true meaning.  Congrats to Melanie Notkin. Her new book Otherhood: Modern Women Finding A New Kind of Happiness, is being launched today!

Check it out: OTHERHOOD

More about the book: More American women are childless than ever before—nearly half those of childbearing age don’t have children. While our society often assumes these women are “childfree by choice,” that’s not always true. In reality, many of them expected to marry and have children, but it simply hasn’t happened. Wrongly judged as picky or career-obsessed, they make up the “Otherhood,” a growing demographic that has gone without definition or visibility until now.

In Otherhood, author Melanie Notkin reveals her own story as well as the honest, poignant, humorous, and occasionally heartbreaking stories of women in her generation—women who expected love, marriage, and parenthood, but instead found themselves facing a different reality. She addresses the reasons for this shift, the social and emotional impact it has on our collective culture, and how the “new normal” will affect our society in the decades to come.
