Summary from Goodreads:
An engrossing and thought provoking novel that examines the intricacies of marriage, friendship, and the power of unexpected connections…
Annabel Ford has everything under control, devoting her time to her twin five-year-old boys and to keeping her household running seamlessly. So when her husband of a decade announces that he’s leaving her, without warning, she’s blindsided. And suddenly her world begins to unravel.
Single mother Piper Whitley has always done her best to balance it all—raising her daughter Fern by herself and advancing her career as a crime reporter. Only now that she’s finally met the man of her dreams, Fern’s absentee father arrives on the scene and throws everything into a tailspin.
Married to the heir of a thriving media conglomerate, Mackenzie Mead has many reasons to count her blessings. But with an imperious mother-in-law—who’s also her boss—and a husband with whom she can no longer seem to connect, something has to give.
On the surface, these three women may not have much in common. Yet when their lives are thrust together and unlikely friendships are formed—at a time when they all need someone to lean on—Annabel, Piper, and Mackenzie band together to help each navigate their new realities.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
As I was reading this, I thought several times that Some Women would make an excellent movie!
Secrets, new friendships, discovering yourself, being a mom, learning that you are more than a mom, and putting the romance back into your life are themes of Some Women. Each character is at a junction in her life- one’s dealing with a divorce, one has the perfect relationship (except that it’s not passionate!) and the other is dealing with a blast from the past.
While the friendships form by accident- the lessons, the help, the support- give each woman the breath of air they need- to go forth. To live. To discover life. To even give up some perfection.
- Love the cover, love the colors (heck, I bought it because the cover would look lovely on my shelf!)
- As usual, in stories of 3 women- I could understand each of the struggles- although I could never truly say that one woman was like me.
- While, I did have 2 of the 3 stories ending guessed- the 3rd one was a bit of a surprise 🙂
Bottom line: Quick read. Fun. Easy. Nice way to end the day- reading Some Women and relaxing!
