Letters from Nin: Wisdom, Advice, and Encouragement for a First-time Mother
Nin a young first-time mom, excited, but uncertain about the adventure she faces. She writes to her deceased mother's best friend, Kathe, a professional in the field of child development. Kathe writes back with warmth and wisdom, and so begins an ongoing dialogue about childcare, young motherhood, womanhood, feminism, family, and much more. As the baby grows, Nin grows with him. Guided by Kathe's insight, she experiences and understands baby blues, colic, toilet training, first steps and first words, the terrible twos, and preschool. We also follow Nin's own progress as a young woman struggling to maintain her individuality while she devotes herself to mothering.
