I really enjoyed reading this book...at the time I was reading this I was a stay at home mom and some of the stuff really hit home. It is a good, easy read with some laughs and a few tears as well.

Four women who met through a mother's group when their children were babies have been meeting once a month for years. Now that their children are in school, each woman is yearning for something that she feels is lacking in her life. Deirdre is married to a sweet, helpful, gangly doctor, but what she really desires is her old singing career with her old singing partner. Because Anne and her independent filmmaker husband are always financing his movies, she is the main breadwinner, but what she would really like to do is open her own restaurant. Juliette is a stay-at-home mom. Her son has emotional issues, but that doesn't stop her from wanting another child, even though her husband is against it. And Lisa is the least needy of the group. Her life and her children are as regimented as the army. She wants for nothing, but her orderly life will soon be topsy-turvy. Through her women characters, Satran tells realistic and intriguing stories that will enthrall and, ultimately, surprise readers.
