The definitive 'how to' guide for blending stepmothers.
One in three people in the UK is part of a stepfamily. Remarriages now make up 38% of weddings and many of these marriages involve children from previous relationships on both sides. It's an unfortunate statistic that 70% of blended families break up within the first three years. Seven years ago Jo Danks was in that very situation. She had a daughter from a previous marriage and was head over heels in love with a man in a similar position. She desperately needed help and guidance but while there were many books available on being a stepmother, there were none which could advise her on being a blended stepmother. So after several years of learning on the job, she decided to write the definitive guide to the challenges facing the soon-to-be stepmother. With the inclusion of testimonies from other blending stepmothers, life coaches and counsellors, fun self-assessment exercises and the help of lively characters based on the author's young adolescent family, FROM MOTHER TO STEPMOTHER gives encouragement, practical guidance and a strong sense of fellowship to blending stepmothers everywhere.
