Life, Motherhood and the Pursuit of the Perfect Handbag by Emily Roberson
Everything is going wrong for handbag designer Tess Holland. Her friendly little company has been acquired by a multi-national, her medical resident husband wants to go save lives in Africa, and her best jacket is smeared with baby poop. Suddenly Tess – once the epitome of “work-life balance” with her two cute kids, glamorous job, understanding boss and handsome husband – is struggling to save her career, her marriage, and her flexible schedule.
Tess’s story is a laugh-out-loud funny look at the trials and joys of working parenthood and a great read for anyone (with children or not) who can’t quite figure out how to meet expectations at work and in her personal life while keeping space for her own ambitions and dreams.
