"I can vouch for the fact this book abounds with the soundest of advice."
As a second wife and step mum I can vouch for the fact this book abounds with the soundest of advice. All those contemplating the leap or already travelling the rocky road should buy a copy right now.

"This book certainly touched on most situations that I have encountered along my journey."
Angela Vassallo has captured the humour that is often present in stressful blended family situations, with empathy and useful guidance. I am not only a second wife/stepmother to my husband’s 4 children but also a step grandmother to their 10 children, all of whom are under the age of 7. I am also an ex-wife/ mother from my previous marriage and my husband and I also have a child together. Blending these families with HIS, MINE, and OURS was complicated and I am not sure I have come out the other side yet. This book certainly touched on most situations that I have encountered along my journey. When life gets complicated as it invariably does, I used to say “Welcome to my World” – Now I say “Welcome to my Village”!
