About the book:

Sheila Wray Gregoire takes a candid look at the stresses that can overwhelm both at-home mothers and those juggling careers, and offers fresh, simple strategies for change. There are plenty of books on housework, relationships, self-help or finances. What sets To Love, Honor and Vacuum apart is that it addresses the key factors in family life as parts of the whole rather than in isolation.
