“To Have and To Hold speaks to so many women’s experiences of motherhood and marriage and fits with the rising interest in and acceptance of attachment as a framework for understanding close relationships. Molly's expertise shines on every page, and she writes beautifully. This book is exactly what I would be looking for if I were a new mother “--Dr. Sue Johnson, bestselling author of Hold Me Tight
