Condemn Me Not

Condemn Me Not by Dianne Venetta

Women's Fiction

The words no mother wants to say, and every mother yearns to hear.

Bound by friendship, two women find themselves at common crossroads, struggling with choices both past and present, career and home.

Simone Sheridan and Claire Atkins have been friends since college. Upon graduation, they took off in different directions, forging separate paths through motherhood. Neither planned to look back on the road they traveled with regret—yet that’s exactly what’s at stake when their daughters issue opposing proclamations with regard to college.

Both mothers battle the news, but soon come to learn they must change course, or lose the sacred relationship between mother and daughter. But change is not an easy task when Simone and Claire unexpectedly find themselves staring down their choices, confronted by the same question: Where did I go wrong?


“Judge not lease ye be judged! Walk a mile in my shoes and other such sayings are all brought to mind with this intriguing book. Dianne Venetta put a modern spin on a mother’s thoughts of “Did I do all I could?” Loved it.”

— Amazon review, Faye Miller

“Brings to the forefront some real issues that affect every mother today, but not often discussed. I recommend this book for every mother or mother to be. Very easy to read but at the same time full of very complex issues. ”
