A fairly predictable read about a mother and her two daughters who find their lives are not all they thought or want them to be.

If you are looking for a quick easy read book to entertain while travelling or on vacation, this one might work. It is a book about a wife who molded herself into everything her husband, the senator, needed, only to discover he had an affair. She is rocked to her core and escapes to her childhood summer home to ponder her future. Sharing this pondering time is her successful doctor daughter who realizes she has built her whole life as she thought she wanted it but now finds it all hollow. Not to be left behind is the younger daughter who, of course, is not successful. She needs to sort out her aimless druggie life and hopes that coming home is the key. Yes, very much a formula, but still an interesting page-turner.

This book is pretty slow, and honestly, it's a little boring. Despite many interesting events occurring, I never felt very connected or captivated by the characters and plot. It didn't live up to its potential. I'd skip it.

I didn't like it. This book was boring and the characters weren't engaging at all. I struggled to complete this book and when it ended, I was relieved, and disappointed.

It took me a bit to get into this one, but I am glad that I stuck it out. I love Jennifer Weiner and this was a great book.

A novel about truth in how we see ourselves and others see us. A very good read.

I LOVED this book! I read it on vacation. It was an easy read but also quite insightful and engaging. The author has an excellent ability to develop characters and plot that kept me turning the digital pages (I bought I copy for my iPhone). I highly recommend this book and this author.
