I received a copy of Mating for Life by Marissa Stapley in exchange for an honest review.
This book covers the lives of Helen Sear who was a former folk singer and a feminist, who raised three daughters on her own. Each of Helen’s daughters has a different father and Helen has never believed in monogamy, even now that she’s met someone who wants to marry her. Although she is afraid he won’t understand why she refuses to get married she’s afraid to be considered a sell-out if she does. Helen’s three daughters are trying to find their own way in love, and to make their own decisions in spite of everything they have learned from their mother. Everyone’s perspective is eye-opening and explores the choices we all make – be it to remain single or marry. The daughters are all relatable in their varying stages of life and it is an in depth look at why some of us make the decisions we do and what we would sacrifice to keep what we have.
