The XX Factor

Coming Back in Paperback

So many women fear leaving the world of paid work voluntarily to spend time with their children. They wonder if they can ever return to where they left off, and some of them worry that they can never come back at all. Emma Gilbey Keller, the editor of DoubleX ‘s Your Comeback blog, wrote an inspiring book about women who returned to their chosen fields triumphantly. That book, The Comeback: Seven Stories of Women who Went from Career to Family and Back Again , is just out in paperback, and if you want to read a buoying story about women in transition, Emma’s book is the perfect choice.
