Women who choose not to become mothers are often warned that they will regret the decision later in life. We rarely talk about the opposite: that there are women who regret being mothers.

Based on years of research and interviews with women from different backgrounds, sociologist Orna Donath views regret as a feminist issue. She speaks to women about freedoms and liberties, frustrations, feelings of guilt, love for their children and unfulfilled wishes. In regret motherhood Donath challenges the still valid assumption that every woman is destined for motherhood.

This poignant and provocative book has sparked countless heated debates internationally and is published at a time when the position of women has yet to be defended.

Orna Donat is an Israeli sociologist, lecturer, writer and feminist activist. She teaches at Tel Aviv University, Ben Gurion University and the University College of Tel Aviv-Yaffo. Regret motherhood has been published in thirteen countries.

Crazy stories circulate around Het Besiandershuis. Exciting stories. Ghost stories. But none of that is true…is it? To prove it, six children break into the house one night. Three boys and three girls. It’s a decision that will change their lives.

Each child finds himself in a different time in Nijmegen: Sami finds himself in the Batavian revolt, Sarre in the time of Mariken van Nieumeghen, Mette in the plague epidemic, Dex in the late 19th century, Caya in the Second World War world and Mats gets involved in the Pierson riots in 1981. All six have something to make up for…

The Besidershuis really exists. It has stood near the Waalkade in Nijmegen for almost 500 years. A house that is one of the few to have survived urban storms – and is therefore a wormhole through which one can crawl into history. But can you go back?

Marloes Morshuis has written this framework story for the interactive project “The Spirit of the Besiendershuis”, which will start in Nijmegen in mid-October. At the end of the book, a brief description and explanation is included of each time period in which the stories – largely true – take place.

Marloes Morshuis conquered the world of children’s books with Cooking for the Emperor, Borealis, Radovar’s Shadows, Quota and Semper Sol. She enjoys writing exciting stories that take children into another world – and at the same time make them look at their own world through different eyes.
