From the Publisher:
Ten years after leaving high-power jobs to raise their children, four New York friends enter their forties while struggling with the differences between their past ideals and their present realities, a situation that become turbulent when one of them meets a successful working mother of three who seems to have it all. (General Fiction)
Annotation:
Four female friends try to understand their lives and choices after they leave behind their jobs (and identities) in order to raise their children in this sharp and humorous take on the modern state of the feminist dream.

Praise

"A wise, witty...perceptive, highly pleasurable novel that serves as Wolitzer's up-to-date answer to the old question: 'What do women want?'" 12/15/2007

"It's a rare novelist who can transform domestic fiction into a sustained, smart, funny inquiry into the price of ambition, the value of work, issues of class, and the meaning of motherhood--Wolitzer is that novelist." 12/15/2007

"Wolitzer's middle-aged moms are flawed: selfish, neurotic, and occasionally petty. But they--and their conflicts--feel vividly, satisfyingly real." 03/28/2008
