No One But a Woman Knows: Stories of Motherhood Before the War

by Margaret Llewelyn Davies
£7.99   paperback  Virago Press (2012)

No One But a Woman Knows: Stories of Motherhood Before the War by Margaret Llewelyn Davies Reissued with a stunning new jacket design, the Virago classic about motherhood for working class women at the turn of the last century
 
'I was married at twenty and a mother of three by twenty-three . . . When I look back at the first three years of my marriage, I wonder how I lived through it.'
 
When it was published in 1915 No One But a Mother Knows provoked a sensation - for the first time, working women were able to put across their view of maternity. These humbling autobiographical portraits are as valuable today as they were almost 100 years ago: in their own words these women tell of the horrors of bringing ten children into the world in as many years; of not being able to afford a doctor or nurse; of the physical and emotional strain of bringing up large families with very little help. These extraordinary and inspiring stories of poverty and hardship remind us of the astounding endurance of woman and of the strength of a mother's love.
