“When I contemplate the Holy Family, I often wonder about those ‘hidden years’ -- the decades left biblically undescribed that laid the foundation for Jesus Christ's public ministry. In Working Mother, Erin McCole Cupp offers us one possible scenario in a story that is emotionally gripping and filled with heart. Based on known biblical precepts, Working Mother contemplates the depths of Mary and Joseph's ‘yes’ to God's will for their lives."
Lisa M. Hendey, author of The Grace of Yes and Founder of CatholicMom.com
“It's not often that we're given a look at the Virgin Mary as a real person without somehow finding her diminished. And yet, that's exactly what McCole-Cupp does in this novella. It's not only a delightful read, but one that will increase your appreciation for the Mother of God.”
Sarah Reinhard, Author and Blogger, SnoringScholar.com
“Working Mother is an intimate and compelling glimpse into the lives of the Holy Family during their exile in Egypt. Reading [Working Mother ]helped me to understand a bit of the physical and emotional struggles that the Holy Family might have faced in their daily lives. I came away with a greater respect for their strength and a greater empathy for their humanity. Well done!”

“As a working mother, it’s hard to find time to read for enjoyment. A novella rich with imagery and pulsing with palpable faith, Working Mother is not to be missed. You will find yourself seeing through the eyes of Mary only to look back at yourself. If you struggle coming to terms with working outside of the home and living out your vocation as wife and mother, this is a must read.”

“Erin McCole Cupp's 'Working Mother' pulls us into the daily life of the Holy Family. The story portrays how the Lord creates miracles from the mundane, answering prayers and weaving the tapestry of our lives in the most unpredictable of ways. I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. The writing was excellent and the tone was reflective. Prayerfully read, Cupp's story is edifying.”
AnnMarie Creedon, Author, Angela’s Song
“Imagine the Holy Family's journey to Egypt from an inside perspective. How might Mary have been called upon to be faithful in the details of supporting her family? How might Joseph have grown in his relationship with God as his son? Enjoy a refreshing perspective of an ancient journey through vivid details, drawing us closer to God.”
A. K. Frailey, Author, The Road Goes Ever On: A Christian Journey Through The Lord of the Rings
“Erin McCole Cupp gives the term “working mother” an unexpected twist in this thought-provoking story. Imagine a different time, a different place, and a familiar figure thrust into a role never imagined. Then stir in sacrificial giving with no guarantees and without a roadmap…”

Can Cate and Gene find the cause of the mysterious illness afflicting nearly all of the girls in their graduating class, including Cate herself? Or will corporate bullies continue to take down anyone who gets in their way? More importantly, can Cate stay alive long enough to get one more slice of tomato pie?
