Take Daily as Needed : A Novel in Stories
by Kathryn Trueblood




Overview -

Maeve Beaufort's family is messy and complicated, rife with competing demands, difficult compromises, and on-the-spot judgment calls. She is the single mother of Noelle, who has anaphylactic reactions to nuts, and Norm, a nonconformist child whom everyone wants to diagnose. Her father is spending his retirement on high-ticket items he doesn't need, her children's teachers are suggesting medication, and her mood-swinging mother is threatening to move in. Newly diagnosed herself with Crohn's disease, Maeve feels as though she is failing herself, her parents, and her children. But with spirit and determination--and a healthy dose of survival humor--she gives it her best go. Anyone who has ever felt overwhelmed, underappreciated, underpaid, and underwater will find a kindred spirit in Maeve.
