Each day this week, CBC Books will present a reading from one of the Canada Reads 2013 contenders. Today's clip is from David Bergen, reading from The Age of Hope. Hockey Night in Canada host Ron MacLean is defending The Age of Hope during the debates February 11-14, 2013.
In this clip (runs 4:22), Hope is newly married and she and her husband, Roy, have built a new house and want to fill it with children. At first Hope struggles to get pregnant, but eventually the babies come -- and she finds herself a stay-at-home mother of three, doing her best to raise them and be a good housewife.
