Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Carol Dawson, "a master of the light, suspenseful touch" (Chicago Tribune), comes a bittersweet novel about the "other woman" in every marriage....

the Mother-in-Law Diaries

Lulu Penfield has had more mothers-in-law than most people could have in three lifetimes. From the maven of household hints to the glacially polite New Zealander to a reputed witch who practices voodoo on an old Raggedy Ann doll, each one of her husbands' mothers has been a singularly memorable participant in Lulu's colorful marital misadventures.

Now Lulu herself has become a mother-in-law...and as the torch is passed, Lulu cracks away at the ageless mystery of bonding with her own son's wife — and makes some surprising discoveries as she goes.

"Alternately hilarious and gut-wrenching" (The Austin Chronicle), the Mother-in-Law Diaries rings true for anyone who has ever said "I do" — and who didn't realize that she was marrying not one person, but two.

About the Author

Carol Dawson is the author of three previous novels --- Body of Knowledge, Meeting the Minotoaur, and The Waking Spell — and Job, a book of poetry. She lives in Austin, Texas.
