Author(s): Michele Powles; Renee Liang
Two courageous Kiwi women, one an author and the other a paediatrician, lay bare the raw joy, beauty, discomfort and humour of modern motherhood. The result is remarkable and fearless.
Through births, death, stumbles and first steps, Michele Powles and Renee Liang wrote. And together these gifted writers achieved something remarkable: their words have fearlessly and charmingly laid bare the raw joy, beauty, discomfort and humour of modern motherhood. But beyond this, the exchange in When We Remember to Breathe is positive testimony to what is important in life itself – what gives it meaning: the people we love, the challenges we face and the life we give.
“Powles and Liang have a beautiful, almost whimsical, style of writing. The words flow gently across the page, intuitively exploring what it is that gives meaning to our lives . . .” --KIDSPOT
“Must reading for parents and parents to be… Wise and clever, always funny and sometimes sad, this collection goes deep to the heart of what it means to be a mother, and a friend.” --SONJA DE FRIEZ
