MumLife Synopsis

The Top 10 Sunday Times Bestseller 'Hilarious, honest, heartwarming, like a hug from a friend, just perfect. I couldn't love this mumoir more' Mrs Hinch 'An honest account of becoming a woman and mother... an engaging read' Giovanna Fletcher MumLife; noun: the inescapable swirling vortex of love, guilt, joy, annoyance, laughter and boredom that makes up the life of a mum. Louise Pentland has been through a lot. From a traumatic birth with her first daughter, to single motherhood, to finding love again and having a second child, Louise's parenting journey has been full of surprises. Discussing the realities most working mums face, plus the impact of maternal mental health, Louise is on a mission to make other mums feel less alone, and very much heard. She beautifully reveals her own imperfect but perfect route to motherhood, as well as the loss of her mum so early in her life, how it shaped her and the mother she became. Reflective, uplifting and with her signature hilarious wit, MumLife will share Louise's ups and downs, reflecting on her route to motherhood and what she has learnt along the way. This is the honest truth, from someone who's been there and experienced it all. ***** For each book sold Bonnier Books UK shall donate 1% of net receipts and Louise Pentland shall donate 100% of her royalties to the NSPCC.

MumLife Press Reviews

Hilarious, honest, heartwarming, like a hug from a friend, just perfect. I couldn't love this mumoir more - Louise has managed to capture the good, the bad, the ups and the downs of motherhood, all in her signature hilarious and witty style * Mrs Hinch * Louise Pentland is such a warm and witty author * Jenny Colgan * Utterly self-assured, so, so, so honest and downright brave. Wilde About the Girl is funny, sweet, honest and full of love. Every page is packed with hard-earned wisdom, joy and truth, I loved - truly loved - it. Louise's characters are so real, I felt as though I was sat at the kitchen table, enjoying a mug of (spiked) hot chocolate with Robin, Lacey and Auntie Kath, laughing and crying along with them * Lindsey Kelk * Hilariously funny with depth and emotion, it's a delightful read * Heat * A gorgeous read. Beautifully poignant and touching. I loved it! * Paige Toon * Providing a refreshingly honest take on life as a working single mother, this debut presents the agonising, heart-breaking and memorable moments of titular character Robin Wilde. Its message resonates - life is messy and sometimes we just have to embrace its unpredictability. You'll be left empowered! * Woman * Sparkling dialogue, heartfelt emotion and a cast of engaging characters are becoming the hallmarks of these original and entertaining stories. But underneath the quips and quirks are some important personal and social issues which are handled with sensitivity and insight * Lancashire Evening Post *
