Motherhood Exaggerated takes readers from diagnosis to remission as eight-year-old Nadia endures the nightmare of potentially terminal bone cancer. In her emotionally charged memoir, Judith Hannan recounts her young daughter’s battle with cancer and how the frightening medical journey sent her into a “heightened state of motherhood”.
I was pulled into this book from the moment I started reading. What I loved most is that Judith Hannan never whitewashes the truth about what she went through as a mother during her daughter’s illness. She admits to her own insecurities, missteps, and moments of weakness. As she and her husband struggle with the harsh demands of their daughter’s surgeries and chemotherapy treatments, they must deal with their own issues and fears while still parenting their other two children.
This was a beautiful and honest look at what childhood cancer can do to a family…both the positive and negative. I couldn’t help but cry along with them at every struggle, and cheer at every small victory Nadia achieved as she battled for her very life.
