Becoming a mother is rarely what you expect.
Jane Roper never expected she’d have twins—or that they’d be such a spirited twosome. She didn’t expect that finding the right balance of work and home would be so tricky. And she certainly didn’t expect she’d grapple with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder during her daughters’ toddler years. But she also didn’t anticipate just how much joy, laughter and self-discovery motherhood would bring.
Full of warmth, honesty, occasional advice, and a generous helping of humor, Double Time is a smart and engaging account of the first three years with multiples and a refreshingly candid and vulnerable look at clinical depression. It’s a memoir that will resonate countless women—especially those parenting in double time.
"With candor to spare, Jane Roper shares her twin-parenting tale with commitment, compassion and a generous dose of comedy. Whether you are expecting twins, parenting twins, dealing with depression, or simply want a great read from a great writer, read Double Time!" -- Cheryl Lage, author of Twinspiration-Real Life Advice from Pregnancy through the First Year
“With humor and frankness, the author opens a private door into her life as a new mother of fraternal girls . . . A straightforward, honest look at how raising a child is difficult, but raising twins can be exponentially more demanding.” --Kirkus
