What do you do when you find out you’re pregnant – times two?!When Jane Roper found out she was pregnant with twins, she searched high and low for a memoir of the first years with multiples, but came up empty-handed. Four years later, she wrote the book she wished she’d had as a new mother of twins. Double Time is an entertaining, up-close and very personal look at Jane Roper's first three years raising twin daughters. From trying to get pregnant to processing the idea of twins, from round the clock feedings and diaper changes to the joy of watching “twinteractions” between her girls as their (very different!) personalities emerge, Jane tells all. Meanwhile, she struggles to keep a history of depression under control—and find answers when her symptoms get worse. All this while falling steadily in love with her duo as they grow from sleepy newborns to mischievous toddlers with a penchant for potty talk.Full of warmth, honesty, occasional advice, and more than a little humor, Double Time is a smart and engaging account of the first three years with multiples, as well as a refreshingly candid and vulnerable look at parenting, clinical depression, and the quest for work-family balance. It’s Jane Roper’s story, but it’s one that will resonate with countless women—especially those parenting in double time.

Touchingly Honest

I think this book strikes a chord with any parent, not just parents of twins, so in that respect I still found I was able to identify with a lot that Jane wrote about. I can image for anyone parenting, or about to parent twins that this book would make Jane the best friend you want to hold your hand. She writes in such an honest way (Although a bit too honest for my personal liking. On occasion there is the odd f-word. But that is just me.) that you know you are privileged to be reading such a candid account. She captures the spirit of motherhood brilliantly, particularly the perennial feeling of guilt. It is a funny and reassuring book that makes you feel grateful and reminds you that you are not alone.
