In sharing that love I have been blessed to have the children that were born to my husband and his previous wives. When I first met the two oldest as teens, I knew I would never be their mother. That at best I would one day get to be a friend to them and someone they could trust to share with. I hated the view of step moms but I decided to use just that to break the ice with them. So I told them they did not need to call me mom or even my own name but instead to just call me Step Monster. They l [...]

I do think it is a great book and step moms could really benefit from using this book. Focuses on divorce and the introduction to a step mom.
