Mom's the Word by Marilynn Griffith is fun mom-lit with a faithful twist. Karol Simon's life has shrunk from being a successful business woman with dreams of being a writer to being a frazzled wife and mother. When her best friend Hope moves from next door, and the new neighbor is a skinny, type-A career woman named Dyanne, Karol is angry at not only the loss of Hope, but at her husband's betrayal in sending her away. To make up for it, her hubby gives her 21 days of vacation from motherhood: no chores, worrying about the kids, and no one to call her Mom! Karol needs to decide if she has the courage to try to dream again. Griffith is a fantastic writer, and this book is evidence of her ability to juggle multiple plots with ease. Between Karol, Dyanne, and several intriguing subplots, the story flies! Karol is a mom so many can relate to: she loves her husband and kids, but she wants to be something more than just a mom and to use the gifts that God gave her. Learning to juggle motherhood with individuality is a struggle most moms face, and Griffith depicts Karol's yearning to be a writer with depth, heart, and humor.
