Glimpses of Grace – Gloria Furman (Book Review)


It’s 3am and the baby is crying. You groan, roll over and wriggle yourself out of the sheets. While the baby eats, you’re squinting at your iPhone and looking through Pinterest in an attempt to keep yourself awake.

While attempting to burp the baby, you strip your toddler’s jammies with your free hand, clean her up, put her in fresh jammies and put her back to bed. You feel a warm sensation down your back . . . spit up. You want to be mad and maybe even cry out of frustration, but you leave it there until the baby is back down. You change your top in the dark, then snuggle back into bed as quickly as possible. After it feels like you’ve slept for ten minutes, it’s already 6:30am and it’s time for the baby to eat again. You’re exhausted and the day has only begun.
