Review

Your work has helped me immeasurably. My recent vacation with my mother-in-law is real proof of that. I was happier and more relaxed on this vacation than ever before. You have put this relationship in perspective and given me the context of others' relationships. Thank you!"

More About the Author

Eden Unger Bowditch has been writing since she was very small. She has been writing since she could use her brain to think of something to say. She wrote at the University of California, Berkeley, and she wrote songs as a member of the band 'enormous'.

She has written stories and plays and shopping lists and screenplays and dreams and poems--and also books about her longtime Baltimore home. She has lived in Chicago and France and other places on the planet, and has been a journalist, as well as a welder, and an editor, and other things, too.

The Atomic Weight of Secrets is the first installment of The Young Inventors Guild trilogy. The Ravens of Solemano is the second.

Presently, Eden lives with her family (husband and three children) in Cairo, Egypt. But that's another story entirely . . .

Format: Paperback
I couldn't wait to receive this book in the mail. Finally a professional approach to a chronic world-wide issue! Well, I was disappointed. Tons of 'testimonies,' tons of support but alas no advice. Nothing most daughters-in-law don't already know anyway.
For example, one of the main reasons I bought the book was because it touched on unsupportive husbands. However, what does it say about unsupportive husbands? That they should support their wives. That's it, period amen. No advice for those whose husbands refuse. No alternative suggestions.
I'll tell you what, I know exactly the same thing I knew before I purchased the book. If you're a professional and can offer sound advice and suggestions, please do us a favor and write a book or something. You'll hit the jackpot...gauranteed.

Format: Paperback
Due to the fact that it was a new title, and therefore more likely to be up to date with todays issues between DIL & MIL, I was really hoping that this book would offer practical advice on how to cope with, understand and approach my emotionally demanding mother in law. Unfortunately, this book did not offer such advice. There were plenty of stories from other daughters-in-law which did offer some consolation, making me feel less 'alone' in my struggle, but I was really looking for ways to help me 'breath through' or 'confront' the problems that I am experiencing with my Husbands mother.
This book would be fine if you just want to hear other womens venting, but thats about it.

Format: Paperback
I'll admit I was skeptical when I started this book. NOTHING could help me with my mother-in-law problems! Well, this book really did! Other's stories were a comfort and helped illustrate the various pitfalls in the mother-in-law/daughter-in-law relationship. The questionaires at the end of each chapter helped me (and my husband) sort out our feelings and pinpoint exactly what was causing the friction. These conversations are so easy to avoid, but the advice in this book helped me prepare for and be comfortable with talking things out. It also helped me deal with problems that have no easy fix. I would recommend it to anyone who has Mother-in-law trouble and I'd buy it for all newlyweds--before the problems start!

Format: Paperback
I'm a newlywed and currently have my "monster-in-law" living with us. Before she moved in, we were the best of friends but things drastically changed and I can't even manage to be in the same room as her! I'm desperatly seeking some kind of advice and there are no books out there that relate to my situation. I'm only 24 years old and have no kids, so it seems there aren't any people out there that can relate or there just isn't anyone who has written about it yet. This book is the closest I can get. Although it is a great read and has wonderful advice, about 80% of the information I can't relate to. I highly recommend this book but it's not for me.
