Heather Havrilesky's Salon essay about being a stepmother, which takes as its jumping-off point Wednesday Martin's new book, "Stepmonster: A New Look at Why Real Stepmothers Think, Feel and Act the Way We Do," brings to mind the most sympathetic stepmother in the dramatic canon: Rose Stopnick Gellman in Tony Kushner and Jeanine Tesori's all-around brilliant "Caroline, or Change."

If you don't know Rose, who was played with heartbreaking nuance by Veanne Cox in the musical's too-short 2004 Broadway run, she's yet another reason to get acquainted with the show. The cast recording is an eloquent introduction.
