A must-read for all women juggling career
and family: an inspiring book that argues that women
can have it all—just not all at once.
all heard the chatter in magazines and on television about
off-ramps and on-ramps, decreased earning power, increased
competition, too much readjustment, too little flexibility,
no jobs, no hope—nothing to look forward to. Women are used
to being told that once we get off the career track, we
can't get back on. In The Comeback, Emma Gilbey
Keller proves that this isn’t true: More and more, companies
today are looking at the value of hiring returning mothers.
In this encouraging book, Keller tells the stories of seven
very different women who sought to strike a balance between
demanding careers and budding families. With all of them
there came a moment—unplanned—when they decided to give up
work and become full-time mothers. Then, some time later,
each of them decided it was time to start thinking about
going back. Their stories are complicated, filled with the
choices, decisions and trade-offs that all mothers face.
Each ended up with some version of the balance that we all
strive for as we juggle work and families. Achieving this
balance always takes effort, frustration, and give-and-take,
but in the end anyone can do it.
An absorbing blend
of story, insight, advice, and inspiration, The
Comeback offers a positive message to mothers
overwhelmed by the ever-shifting work versus home
