In the unforgettable story about the birth of her son (who
suffered a brain injury), Shaughnessy conjures an alternate galaxy where
healing isn't just possible—but
required as a survival tool. "I will be the mother who never hurt you, and
you will have your childhood back in full blossom," she writes. "We
might not know who we are at first, there, without our terrible pain."
Anyone who is—or has—a mother needs to read this book.
