One of the toughest decisions a new mother faces is whether or not to return to work and in what capacity. Women who have spent their adult lives building a career may now find that balancing both child and job just doesn't work. In the tradition of recent, acclaimed titles such as When Work Doesn't Work Anymore and A Mother's Place, at-home-lawyer-turned-author Susan E. Lewis explores the hows and whys of making the decision to halt or alter a career, and the professional, social, and emotional ramifications that may result.

From reidentifying oneself among peers to the changing relationship with one's spouse, Lewis uses insightful anecdotes, humor, and compassion to help women cope with and thrive during this challenging transition.
