Show Me the Way

A Memoir in Stories

Show Me the Way

Having lost both of her prents at an early age, Jennifer Lauck, acclaimed author of the memoir Blackbird and its follow-up, Still Waters, has in Show Me the Way made peace with her past in order to face the future as a mother herself.
In this luminous and mature work, Lauck offers an unflinching account of the joys and pains of modern motherhood. Show Me the Way touches upon the themes common to so many of Lauck's loyal readers: labor, delivery, and the physical delights of giving birth; the decision to have a second child; the struggle to maintain independence and, of course, a healthy sex life; the tenuous work/life balancing act; the gossamer threads that bind a family together; the soul-defining nature of caring for children; and the ultimate surrender of finally "getting it." A moving journey through a mother's dreams and memories, Show Me the Way is also a rewarding and inspiring conclusion for the author's many fans.
