Today Dr. Dan talks to author and mother Rachel Barenbaum about her new novel ATOMIC ANNA (including the novel’s timely relevance to the war in Ukraine); why she is passionate about raising girls to embrace math, science, sports (Rachel was a D1 athlete in college); the complexity of the motherhood journey (including struggles between generations of mothers and daughters); and what defines family (for many there is the family we are born into and the family we choose or create).

Rachel’s first novel A Bend In The Stars was a New York Times Summer Reading Selection, a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection, and a Boston Globe Bestseller. Her second novel ATOMIC ANNA is out now.
