Hopper still conducts retreats and online classes for women, but she is beginning to branch out. She’s ghost-writing a memoir for a couple who have a profoundly autistic son, and she’s working on a novel — not about motherhood, although the protagonist is a mother.

But she is grateful that her ordeal helped her to find her voice. “Motherhood made me a writer,” Hopper said. “In writing this book, I was writing something that feels urgent to me.”
