Lynne Spears's memoir about raising her famous daughters Britney and Jamie Lynn will be released this fall, the publisher confirms to PEOPLE.

"When Jamie Lynn got pregnant, it was put on hold," says a spokesman for Thomas Nelson, which publishes inspirational books and Bibles. "Lynne never stopped working on it because she wants to express her love for her children and tell their stories through a mother's eyes."

Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World" is likely to be released in September, says the spokesman.

"Lynne has had a dramatic life. People will be be very surprised to find out the kind of person she really is," says Lorilee Craker, who co-authored the project with Spears. "Lynne has been incredible to work with."

Spears's manuscript "will not be a parenting book," Nelson says. "It's her story of what it was like being a mom and raising two very famous people. It's a memoir."

The writing of the book is complete. Craker and Spears are now just selecting pictures.
