A staff writer for the Washington Post reports from the front lines of working parents. Her focus is women who are expected to be both members of the workforce and the center of their families’ lives. Why is life so insanely busy, and whatever happened to leisure time? Tavia Gilbert narrates Schulte’s provocative answers to these questions and more, inhabiting the author’s presence as the sometimes puzzled, sometimes frazzled woman seeks to understand the quandary on a personal and professional level. Schulte enriches her research with firsthand accounts of juggling her own career in journalism with high-standards parenting. Gilbert’s narration makes the author’s story funny and insightful. Her pacing is also excellent, allowing the implications of Schulte’s meticulous research to sink in and inform today’s harried families. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
