A Mother-in-Laws Roadmap: The User’s Guide To A Successful Relationship is being launched at the Drill Hall in Mullumbimby on Sunday, 15 November at 4pm. Come along and join the free fun.

A new book by author Ruth Winton-Brown explores the important, but often over looked relationship of mother-in-law.

With A Mother-in-Law’s Roadmap: The User’s Guide To A Successful Relationship, Ms Winton-Brown uses both her own experience of becoming a mother-in-law, and that of others to explore this relationship from a range of perspectives.

‘This book has been written to support people to  navigate the delicate relationship with their mother- or daughter-in-law,’ Ruth told The Echo.

‘As a general rule, mothers-in-law experience bad press. Personally, I learnt so much from interviewing both mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law, and it has helped me learn to stand back’.

She says one key insight that came from the research for the book was to respect the decisions that your adult children make, ‘even if you don’t always agree’.

The book will be launching at the Drill Hall in Mullumbimby on Sunday, 15 November at 4pm, with some champagne bubbles and laughter with comedian Mandy Nolan, who was also interviewed for the book.

The event is free and everyone is welcome.
