The Playgroup by Elizabeth Mosier

 Sarah Holloway is an art therapist and new mother who is trying to hide her ‎childhood wounds by healing others‎. ‎During her daughter’s first two ‎years, she has faked her way through motherhood with the help of women in her ‎neighborhood playgroup‎. ‎

Just when Sarah thinks she has gotten the hang of raising one child, she learns she is ‎expecting another. ‎Then, a routine test reveals a mysterious mass in her unborn ‎baby’s abdomen‎. ‎The sonogram awakens Sarah’s fear that her children have inherited her ‎damage‎—‎and uncovers a secret that could end her marriage‎.

“Elizabeth Mosier’s wisdom about families comes through on every page of THE PLAYGROUP. I highly recommend this touching, compelling book about motherhood and about the human heart.”
― Robin Black, If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This

“The Playgroup is a moving and beguiling glimpse into the everyday miracle of motherhood. Mosier has created a neighborhood that includes the world, one beloved child at a time.”
