Review of Embracing Motherhood

I just found a review that was published some time ago. It's in the link above. two books are reviewed and my book, Embracing Motherhood is one of them:

...For the Catholic mothers out there, Donna-Marie Cooper O'Boyle has written a thought-provoking book that provides encouragement to moms trying to raise children in the Catholic faith while living in a world that doesn't necessarily share the same values. "Embracing Motherhood" approaches parenting as a vocation, as something more than just an assignment a woman takes on at a certain stage in life.
Mothers that haven't viewed motherhood this way before may find a helpful new perspective that could stand them in good stead, especially on the tough days. Those of other faith traditions may find O'Boyle's perspective helpful in general, too, but readers will know that this book presumes the reader is Catholic.
A similarity between Lauer's novel and O'Boyle's nonfiction work that may jump out at readers is that both books portray work, or a person's calling, as having the inherent dignity of doing God's will.
In other words, whether it's tending to chores on the family farm or raising children, the attitude with which you approach your work can make all the difference.
Both these books feature people who are strong in their particular faiths.
