The Push

Find it on Goodreads

I’m not sure what I think about this book. It’s well written. And page turning. And deeply dark.

It’s about mothers and daughters and marriage. Also mental illness and how it can be passed down through generations.

It also illustrates how significant it is that we learn how to be humans from the people who raise us. How to be mothers from our mother. It’s really hard to act differently from your parents, it’s possible but it takes an intentional effort.

“I would be different. I would be like other women for whom it all came so easily. I would be everything my own mother was not.”
