The Scholar and the Housewife

scholarIn her newly published memoir The Scholar and The Housewife, Boston College alumna Susan (Marren) Whelan recounts the people and events that informed her choices and strengthened her beliefs. Set against the backdrop of Wall Street in the 1980s and ’90s, Whelan, now a legal expert/delegate for the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations, brings her experience as a wife and mother of six, volunteer and lawyer to an honest discussion of the pressures on women, children and families today in America. In her introduction, an open letter to her children, she calls her book the musings of a parent struggling to find truth in the mundane and searching for wisdom and understanding.  For more on Whelan, find her on Twitter  or facebook.
