Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Kate Hopper- Ready for Air

One comment



Are you Ready for Air?  LM Editor Kate Hopper starts a blog tour tomorrow to celebrate her newest book!

About Ready for Air:
"Half a million babies are born prematurely in the United States every year--almost one every minute--each with a unique story, and Hopper eloquently gives a voice to what their parents share: the shock, the scares, the lonely nights in the neonatal intensive care unit, the fierce attention to detail that makes for sanity and craziness, the light of faith, the warmth of family, and the terrifying attachment. Through it all runs the power of words to connect us to one another, as Hopper draws on her gifts as a writer first to help her navigate this uncertain territory and then to tell her story."
