Can women have it all? What does it mean to be a woman and a mother in
the modern age?

In this passionate, funny and fierce polemic, Paloma Faith delves deep into the
issues that face women today, from puberty and sexual awakenings, to battling
through the expectations of patriarchy and the Supermum myth.

Infused with Paloma's characteristic humour and raw honesty about the
challenges of IVF and the early years of motherhood, this book is a beautiful
celebration of women's work and the invisible load women carry. Moving from
questions around identity and how motherhood impacts on that, to what it even
means to be a "good mother", how we need to embrace messiness,
imperfection and the bitter sweet pleasures of being "selfish" and putting
ourselves first.

Paloma invites us into her own coming of age and relationship with her mum, to
explore how our bonds with our children evolve into adulthood. We see a
glimpse of the complexities and joys of Paloma's experience of juggling
romantic love, heartbreak and dating with the demands of motherhood.
