With the wit and sensitivity that have made her famous, Judy Blume creates a complex romantic triangle you'll never forget. She tells the story of two forty-year-old divorcees who are friends: Margo, who is too decent not to feel guilty, yet too sensible to let it keep her from loving, and B.B., who beneath her and glamorous exterior has hidden the most important events in her life. And it is the story of their daughters: Sara, tender and vulnerable, who can sense the crisis building in her mother's life but doesn't know how to stop it, and Michelle, almost a woman, who covers up her own doubts and insecurities with bravado.
Not one of these Smart Women is prepared for what will happen to herself and to the others when Andrew, B.B.'s ex-husband, hits town.
Ranging from funny to bittersweet, from sexy to thought-provoking, Smart Women makes you care about these people and their families; makes you empathize with their frustration, their desire, their pain, as they struggle to solve some very complicated problems. Adult in the best sense of the word, Smart Women has a compulsive readability that will send you racing through its pages.« less
