From bestselling author Ron L. Deal,
with stepmom and divorce recovery expert Laura Petherbridge.

The stepmother's role is ambiguous, under appreciated, and frequently carries unrealistic expectations. This book answers women's concerns and questions, including:

*  How can I be a caretaker and a key emotional connector in the family if the children don't accept my influence?

*  How should I cope with children who are confused about their family and torn between loyalty to their biological mother and me?

When should I step back in conflicts and when should I insist that my husband stand up for me?

What is my role with adult stepchildren?

*  In addition it addresses the spiritual and emotional climate of the home, providing perspective and guidelines to help stepmothers and their families thrive.
