Author Sonja Ridden, herself a step parent, experienced therapist and counsellor, begins by telling us a little of her own personal experience of being a stepmother. It is always interesting to hear another’s views on a subject close in importance to one’s own, and yet highlights that each of us as individuals, and each step-family’s situation is unique to itself though there may be similar points of reference.

Honest, beautifully acerbic, witty, hair-raising and heartwarming. The Woodcutter’s Wife is no fairytale: it’s the warts’n’all story of a woman who doesn’t have all the answers; of a little boy coping with rejection and a painful past riddled with durgs; and of the idea that maybe a stepfamily can become a real family after all.
