Well, this book isn't anything like that. Dom Zeller writes as though he has lived in my brain at some point. Every excuse, every rationalization, every resolve, he somehow knows. And yet he writes with such understanding and love, with encouragement and practical advice, that rather than instill guilt, it inspires me to cultivate my interior life.
What he does is he explains the inherent dignity that is motherhood and housewifery, and shows practical ways that I can actually USE the "drudgery" and constant interruptions as occasions for submitting my will to God's. He goes against these false notions of theoretical "holiness" that require one to resemble a hermit, and teaches how to "pray without ceasing" in a way that is actually doable. Best of all he does not impose any one method on all, but gives principles to easily apply to my particular situation. Whereas other authors merely make you feel like giving up before you even start, this book makes you think "Hey, I can do that. I'll start now!"
