If you’ve ever been in an email discussion loop, you’ll fit right in with cyber-girlfriends, Dulcie, Zelia, Jocelyn, Veronica, and Rosalyn. Fans of Efken’s first mom-lit novel, SAHM I Am, will find plenty to laugh about in her new yuletide tale, Home for the Holidays. The quick-paced email exchanges between these stay-home moms make for hilarious reading as they try to balance housework, family crisis, and the impending holiday madness.
Though the book is uproariously funny, Efken delves into important issues, such as struggles with infertility, postpartum depression, going back to work, discipline problems, and isolation. If you’re a woman who plugs in a laptop to stay connected and sane, this jolly faith-filled novel will keep you turning the pages.
