“Mother knows best” is a time-honored truth. Good luck trying to find one kid who believes it. The Rise and Fall of a Momocracy follows one woman in her attempts to establish a life of order, beauty and cooperation despite facing stubborn resistance at every turn. Vacations go awry, feral raccoons stake claim to the home and certain husbands attempt to move chickens into the back yard. While striving to maintain her sense of humor, if nothing else, our author attempts to answer life’s great questions: How far are you willing to go for the people you love best, and, Is it possible to maintain one’s sense of attractiveness after the onslaught of mutant chin hair begins? (Spoiler: no.)
