Instant motherhood felt a lot like being under house arrest
When a corporate oversight lands her new husband in jail, Kate St. James feels as if she's the one being sentenced. True, her ritzy new home in the suburbs looks nothing like the Big House. But for a woman barely able to keep her tropical fish afloat, Kate's not expecting time off for good behavior when she becomes an instant mother to her husband's two children!
Still, somewhere between dealing with a burned bake sale project, PTA meetings and preteen dating, Kate realizes she's never felt so free. Because being a good mother isn't about being perfect. It's about being there. For the kids, her husband and herself.
