    Sometimes, a book swells into something far lovelier than you assume it will be. Laura June?s warm and moving Now My Heart is Full is one such unforgettable book. What seems like a straightforward memoir about motherhood slowly, carefully, becomes so much more. This, is the story of ...

    Riddled with flaws but look I did my best. ...

    This book took me off-guard. I thought I was the only one who grew up with these experiences. I thought my family was so unique. To hear a life almost just like mine laid out in a book was very shocking. Such a wonderfully told story that reveals so many truths that I'm not sure others...

    NOW MY HEART IS FULL, a memoir by Laura June, is about the author?s experience as a new mother and how, at every turn, her approach to motherhood has been influenced by her relationship with her own late mother. June?s mother was a long-time alcoholic who died quite suddenly of liv...

    Although I feel this book was a tad uneven and needed a better editor it was a well-written and candid look at one woman's relationships with her mother's flaws as she begins her own life as a mother in her mid-thirties. This is a frank look at the challenges of adjusting to being ...

    Rounding up. This memoir reflects on new motherhood through the lens of a woman whose mother was an alcoholic. As a fellow mother of a young daughter (her daughter was born in '14), I'd be interested in the sequel. Maybe a book, maybe essays--the parent/child relationship changes so mu...

    The section that deals most directly with June's mother's alcoholism rang true for me and felt alive and necessary. However, the bulk of the book that deals with pregnancy and early motherhood felt a bit too familiar--in the worst, entitled, aggrieved Brooklyn parenting sense. I take i...

    Riddled with flaws but look I did my best. ...

    This book took me off-guard. I thought I was the only one who grew up with these experiences. I thought my family was so unique. To hear a life almost just like mine laid out in a book was very shocking. Such a wonderfully told story that reveals so many truths that I'm not sure others...
