This is a story about unleashing the hidden truths that haunt a quiet Southern family. Author said: This story is completely fictional. The characters and events came from my healthy imagination. They do not reflect any people I know or love. The characters took on their own personalities and made their own decisions. The Clock Strikes Midnight was a fun book to write. I spent years living with these characters. I hope the readers will enjoy their brief time with them.

Book Title: The Last Taboo: Saying No to Motherhood
Author: Rosemary Agonito
Publisher: Algora Publishing
Published: 2014/08/11 (164 Pages, Paperbook)

The Last Taboo' makes the case against having babies despite fierce, centuries old pressure on women to legitimate themselves through motherhood. Motherhood is the most important issue for a woman since it impacts everything in her life and exerts incredible pressure. This alternative, saying no to babies, will be welcome to women who are considering having babies, who are not sure about children, who don't want to have children but feel they must, who resent pressure to become pregnant, and who feel stigmatized for not having had children. Feminists, environmentalists, progressives will also benefit, as will academic programs in women's studies and family. The glorification of motherhood is everywhere in the media. 'The Last Taboo' breaks ground in questioning the motherhood 'requirement' and its glorification, while testifying to the harm motherhood regularly does to (1) women (their relationships, finances, careers, self-identity, physical energy), (2) unwanted children (half of all pregnancies are unplanned), and (3) the human species and environment (whose very existences are threatened by excessive reproduction.) For too long, women have been consigned to a life not suited to all, or even most women in the modern era, an era reeling under the environmental devastation of overpopulation. Women are not obliged to have children, despite great pressures. Motherhood is not a prerequisite for being a 'real' woman.
