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.”
― Antonya Nelson, Bound, Nothing Right
