A Network Of Care
The 3am Shattered Mums Club by Nina Manning is a charming contemporary novel that had me captivated from the start.
An eclectic mix of new mums were very easy to empathise with. Although it is nearly thirty years since I had my youngest, I was immediately transported back to the early days of motherhood!
3am is definitely the loneliest hour when everyone else in the whole world seems to be sleeping. It is a brilliant idea to set up a WhatsApp group in order to connect with others who are awake at that time.
Being a new mum is not always a bed of roses. Bodies need time to recover but babies are high maintenance. I found the problems faced by the new mums were universal – tiredness, leaking milk, soreness etc. It always helps to talk with others who are in the same boat.
Nina Manning shows how relationships may change with a new baby. Some step up to the plate, others are selfish.
The 3am Shattered Mums Club was a delightful read. It was told from three different and alternating points of view. All the characters were warm and welcoming. They opened their hearts and bared their souls.
It takes a village to raise a child. It takes friendship and support to help new mums survive.
The 3am Shattered Mums Club is a wonderful read whatever your age. It is a book of friendship, support and love. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I received a free copy from Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions were my own.
The 3am Shattered Mum’s Club
Three best friends. One late-night lifeline.
Meet Aisha, Sophy and Mel. Three new mums. All absolutely shattered.
For her social media fans, influencer Sophy has the picture-perfect life. But why does she feel so lonely all the time?
Older mum Mel wasn’t planning on being a mum later in life. What does this all mean for the career that she loved? Can she ever go back?
And Aisha, whose much loved twin boys bring her so much joy, but have caused a rift in her own family that she isn’t sure she can ever fix.
Navigating this new world of motherhood is hard. And the only sanity these three friends have is their 3am mums’ club, where they can chat and support each other in the dark of the night as their babies, finally, finally sleep.
But in the still of the night, secrets are revealed that could turn all their lives upside down…. more than they already are!
Bestselling author Nina Manning is back with a brand-new story of mum guilt, parenting pitfalls and friendship around the clock.
