Samantha Wilde

Top Pick!

"Wilde's latest novel touches on women, friendships, and the wishes women have for themselves. With her easy, amusing, narrative style, Wilde speaks the language of women and communicates what lies in their hearts. Add to that a strong, genuine plot with expressive, intelligent yet flawed characters at the center, and you have a gem of a read."

Online Reviews:

“In this fresh, witty, and side-splitting novel, Samantha Wilde has effectively invented a character who embodies the delightfully depressing and hilariously humiliating rite of passage otherwise known as The First Year of Motherhood…It’s hard for me to write a review about this book because honestly I think you’d be better served by heading straight to Amazon, Indie Bound, or your local bookstore, snatching up this book, and reading it cover to cover immediately…When I first sat down with the book, I started highlighting passages that made me say “Oh my! You just read mind!” However, by the time I was done there was so much highlighting throughout that it looked like I had done my doctoral dissertation on it.” 
thefeministshopper.com

“For this this still-frazzled mom, This Little Mommy Stayed Home had me laughing out loud before I finished the first paragraph. (Seriously, one little passage about the doctor’s frank and surprising declaration upon completing the post-delivery stitching had me gasping for air. Very, very funny stuff here.) Beyond the clever title and absolutely adorable cover lies an all-too-realistic story about the ways in which life can take some unforeseen twists and turns once two become three.” 
5minutesformom.com

“I loved this novel and laughed out loud from the first page right through to the end, and I haven’t even had a baby.
novelescapes.com

“I absolutely loved the concept of this book! I just had my first child last winter so could relate to everything she was writing about first hand- however I don’t think that this book is only entertaining for a current mummy- it’s full of useful insights into marriage and finding oneself too so don’t be put off if you’re not right in the midst of the baby thing at the moment.”

Nora and Annie have been best friends since kindergarten. Nora, a shy English teacher at a quaint New England boarding school, longs to have a baby. Annie, an outspoken stay-at-home mother of two, longs for one day of peace and quiet (not to mention more money and some free time). Despite their very different lives, nothing can come between them—until Cynthia Cypress arrives on campus.

Cynthia has it all: brains, beauty, impeccable style, and a gorgeous husband (who happens to be Nora’s ex). When Cynthia eagerly befriends Nora, Annie’s oldest friendship is tested. Now, each woman must wrestle the green-eyed demon of envy and, in the process, confront imperfect, mixed-up family histories they don’t want to repeat. Amid the hilarious and harried straits of friendship, marriage, and parenthood, the women may discover that the greenest grass is right beneath their feet.

This Little Mommy Stayed Home by Sam WildeNew mom Joy McGuire hasn’t changed her sweatpants since her baby was born. Of course she’s crazy about her newborn son; it’s her distracted, work-obsessed husband and his impossible mother she can’t stand. Joy turns to her own mom for support, but she’s too busy planning her fourth wedding to a suspicious self-help guru. Sure, Joy’s a woman on the brink, but it’s nothing a little sleep, sanity, and chocolate can’t fix.

Until her old college boyfriend shows up at their ten-year reunion. The one she was still in love with when she married her husband. It must be the lack of sleep, because Joy is starting to think she might have ended up with the wrong man. Not to mention she’s obsessed with her sexy yoga instructor, who might just be interested in her. Joy used to be single, skinny, and able to speak in complete sentences, but who is she now? As she’s trying to figure that out, her husband goes missing….

More Praise for This Little Mommy Stayed Home

From the Mamas:

It is 5:00 am, that terrible time you describe in your book when it's too early to get up and too late to go back to sleep - I've been up since 2, actually, and just finished your book - I cannot even tell you how much it helped me... thank you, thank you.
—A Massachusetts Mama

Thank you for writing the book This Little Mommy Stayed Home. It was one of the best books I have ever read, honestly. Very truthful, very funny, very real. Reading your book helped me focus on something else, and laugh along with you. It was great, and I am so thankful that I found your book to help me through the hard times. I am just sad that I am done with the book now.
—An Iowa Mama

I just wanted to write you to let you know how much I'm enjoying "This Little Mommy Stayed Home." I've been reading it non-stop (in my "free" time between working full time and taking care of my four year old daughter) and I am so amazed by how funny, accurate, and wonderful this book is! I just took it with me on my lunch break and almost started to cry (I am toward the end now). You've captured everything I was feeling as a new mom and it's really made me think about and remember how hard that first year was.
—West Coast Mama

Thank you for the gift of this book
—NYC Mama


From the press:

“Illuminating the dark corners of motherhood in “This Little Mommy Stayed Home” with light prose and breezy language, Wilde goes where no chick-lit has gone before…The quick hits of lean, raunchy comedy tantalize readers like bites of spicy chocolate…But Wilde dives into that aching, sleep-deprived psychology head-first and smiling. Her gift for humor and comedic timing allows for an effortless foray into potentially-dangerous territory.”
Nantucket Today

“A witty, frank, and sometimes bawdy look at the stresses and strains of new motherhood…”
Hartford Courant

“I was cracking up from page one…I couldn’t turn the page fast enough.”
Jessica Brody, Women’s World Weekly

“Wilde gives us insight into a new mother's world. She deftly tackles this experience with raw humor as she expresses the psyche of the new mom accurately. This is an amusing tale that will resonate with women, especially new mommies, everywhere.”
