Author Diana McDonough has done it again--graced us with a literary gem to enjoy and ponder.

The sequel to Stuck in the Onesies follows the grown-up daughters of Barb and Ellie. Best friends Karen and Ginger are on widely divergent paths through life. Karen has opted for the more traditional route: raising a family and managing a job. Ginger has pushed the boundaries. Aiming for a career in the music industry, with all its dazzle and rush, she has forsaken family for fame and falls prey to the dangers along the way. A third major character in the drama is the north coast of Jamaica, and by the end, the novel has become a reggae love song to the island.

My Mother's Apprentice is a touching portrayal of how the dearest of friends can drift apart, until they become strangers to each other. It is also a harrowing portrait of addiction's destructive impact on relationships. Finally, it chronicles how low self-esteem, guilt, and unresolved grief can haunt a person for a lifetime, influencing every choice along the way.
