They're all trying to escape from something: Melanie, after seven failed in-vitro attempts, discovered her husband's infidelity and then her own pregnancy; Brenda embarked on a passionate affair with an older student that got her fired from her prestigious job as a professor in New York; and her sister Vickie, mother to two small boys, has been diagnosed with cancer.
Soon Josh is part of the chaotic household, acting as babysitter, confidant, and, eventually, something more, while the women confront their pasts and map out their futures.
Narrator was amazing!
Story was well written. Light hearted and beautiful. Real life issues brought to the surface and how they all get through it together. Summer read!
Fairly good story and the reader was really, really good!
The thing that drove me nuts was short sentences in conversations followed or led by 'He/She said,' ....
The reader's voice is difficult to overcome. Couldn't get into the story. Found it false, but may be marred by the reader
