Author(s): Luisa Dillner
Mothers-in-law are traditionally the butt of jokes, declared to be nasty, possessive and interfering - but are they really as bad as this reputation suggests? This book looks beyond the stereotype of the mother-in-law and finds they come in many different varieties, from loveable and loyal to lonely, ferocious and scheming.
A hugely entertaining look at every type of mother-in-law, across the world and through the ages.
