"Kathleen Melin's compelling story gives us the complicated, difficult truth behind the romance we've all tried on for at least a few seconds — of doing it ourselves; of teaching our own children at home …. As with our lives, there's no necessarily happy ending, but a multisided handful of directions her thoughtful account considers. It's a story anyone who has, or ever had, children will profit by reading."
