The New York Times bestselling novel that woke up critics, book clubs, and women everywhere.
For a group of four New York friends the past decade has been defined largely by marriage and motherhood, but it wasn’t always that way. Growing up, they had been told that their generation would be different. And for a while this was true. They went to good colleges, and began high-powered careers. But after marriage and babies, for a variety of reasons, they decided to stay home, temporarily, to raise their children. Now, ten years later, they are still at home, unsure how they came to inhabit lives so different from the ones they expected—until a new series of events begins to change the landscape of their lives yet again, in ways they couldn’t have predicted.
My Personal Review:
ouch. depressingly realistic sometimes. redundant sometimes. boring sometimes. shocking sometimes. exactly what everyday life as a grown woman is like - sometimes. this one explores more of the similarities between 'working moms' and 'stay at home moms' where many books use the perceived differences to further the popularity of their book with one group or the other. basically, the book lets us know, nobody is perfect, nobody has everything, nobody's life is as great or as awful as you might think. we make choices and those choices take us places - sometimes good, sometimes bad - but always somewhere.
will check wishlists for this one and then potentially offer as a ring or ray.
I'm going to be sending it on now.
CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
sending to awakeagain today! I hope this gets there before your vacation is over! :)
I started reading this back in March and just finished it earlier this afternoon. I just could not get into it at all. However, I was glad to find out the mystery behind "the saffron sister tree" song!
I noticed this is on many wishlists so I will send this out as a RABCK.
