"Each page of this book contains another piece of truth, a moment of time captured evocatively that speaks to my soul on a level I never thought a stranger could. All at once, her words make me laugh, cry, breathe sighs of relief and wish to hug her. This book is a gold mine of must-read loveliness that I think every mama will enjoy as well as find truth in it."
—Summer Thorp-Lancaster, Summer Doula.com

"Lucy's writing is gutsy, honest, touching, and very real. Her words leap off the page to reach right into the heart of the mothering life. She does not shy away from 'ugly' topics and in so doing makes a potent, vibrant, necessary connection to that which we find in ourselves, but may not voice."
—Molly Remer, author of Walking with Persephone and Womanrunes

"Lucy's frank and forthright style paired with beautiful language and her talent for storytelling will have any parent nodding, crying and laughing along – appreciating the good and the bad, the hard and the soft, the light and the dark. It is a must-read for any new mother."
—Zoe Foster, JUNO magazine

"Lucy's honesty about her life as a full time homemaker, with three children and a multitude of other hats she wears, will take you on a gentle roller coaster ride of emotions!
I laughed and cried all the way through this book, and identified with so much of it! Hugely recommended to all mothers...and fathers if you want some insight into our lives!"
—Rachael Hertogs, author of Menarche: a journey into womanhood

"So many parenting books out there actually have very little in them about the parents. Lucy on the other hand writes from the heart of the mother to all mothers. She talks of the joys and the love of having children but she also talks of the things unspoken."
—Laura Angel, Nestled Under Rainbows

"Moods of Motherhood gets under your skin and into your veins – something very few mothering books manage to do. Lucy's raw honesty and fearless approach to expressing all facets of motherhood means that the reader can relax and feel they don't need to be anything other than who they already are."
—Paula Cleary, Go With The Flow Doula.co.uk

Authors

Lucy H. Pearce is the author of life-changing nonfiction books, including Nautilus Award winners Medicine Woman, Burning Woman, and Creatrix: she who makes. Her writing focuses on women’s healing through archetypal psychology, embodiment, historical awareness, and creativity.

An award winning graduate in history of ideas with English literature from Kingston University and a PGCE from Cambridge University. A mother of three, Lucy lives in Cork, Ireland.
 

A beautiful journey through the often nebulous, unspoken tumble of emotions that motherhood evokes—tenderness, frustration, joy, grief, anger, depression, and love—offering support, acceptance, and hope to mothers everywhere.

Moods of Motherhood charts the inner journey of motherhood, giving voice to the often nebulous, unspoken tumble of emotions that motherhood evokes. Lucy H. Pearce explores the taboo subjects of maternal ambiguity, competitiveness, and the quest for perfection, offering support, acceptance, and hope to mothers everywhere. Though the story is hers, it could be yours.

This fully-updated second edition features twenty-three new pieces including posts written for her popular blog, ‘Dreaming Aloud,’ her best-loved magazine columns and articles, and many other original pieces. This is a book full of Lucy’s trademark searing honesty and raw emotions, which have brought a global following of mothers to her work.
