Military wife Hannah Evans has three small boys. In her world, farting is so much more interesting than phonics, dam-building trumps damsels in distress any day and, astonishingly, she now instinctively knows the difference between a front-loader and a JCB. It’s a world of mud – and just occasionally blood – sweat and tears. It’s also a world of indescribable joy.
MOB Rule (published by Bloomsbury, £8.99) is the funny, honest and eye-opening account of Hannah’s experiences as a Mother of Boys. Supplemented by recipes, quizzes, mnemonics and mysteries, it is the indispensable book for anyone who finds themselves adrift on a sea of testosterone, wondering when the lifeboat is going to show up.
Army&You has six copies to give away.
