Hard Work, Low Pay, and A Mother's Will to SurviveBook - 2019
From Library Staff
Samantha S.: "This was my favorite non-fiction book of 2019. It beautifully captures the valuable perspective of a young single mother working to improve her situation. If you liked Educated by Tara Westover, this is another good read."
Obama's review, "Maid by Stephanie Land is a single mother’s personal, unflinching look at America’s class divide, a description of the tightrope many families walk just to get by, and a reminder of the dignity of all work."
