Some women would do anything for their children—and nowhere is that truer than in our August RHBC Spotlight Pick: Such a Good Mother by Helen Monks Takhar.
Rose O’Connell is barely surviving. Her marriage is rocky; her son isn’t fitting in at his new school, the prestigious Woolf Academy; and their tiny apartment in a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood can barely contain her family. Life as the only Woolf mom struggling to make ends meet isn’t easy.
Not so for those in the elite and secretive Circle—a tight-knit group of wealthy mothers who rule the school. When the mysterious death of one of the Circle’s members creates a vacancy, Rose dares to hope she could fill it and transform her life. An invitation follows . . . but she soon realizes the true price of being on the inside.
Such a Good Mother will have you thinking about the sacrifices mothers make—and the myth of having it all. Join us on Thursday, August 25 at 7:30 p.m. ET at our Virtual Happy Hour to discuss these themes and so much more—featuring a special appearance from author Helen Monks Takhar.
