Mama Mojo
(Mama Mojo)

Motherhood is like a rally race – plenty of bumps, and the curves are scary

Everyday life in a family with a baby wasn’t supposed to be like this, was it? Her husband fiddles with cars in a rally pit and her mother-in-law pops up on Skype in the corner of the trailer. A mom could lose her mojo for less!

Julia, familiar from the novel Klaukkala, has settled down with Timppa, the love of her youth. When the birth of their firstborn coincides with Timppa’s dream job as a rally race mechanic, Julia finds herself spending a summer with the baby in a trailer near the rally grounds. Has vintage glamour been forever exchanged for a milk-splashed caftan? Exactly when was it she was supposed to enjoy motherhood? And can a responsible mother put her baby to sleep in a helicopter?
