This is an incredibly enjoyable book for mothers at all stages of child rearing from those who are pregnant to those with older children. It is easy to identify with the women, laugh with them, cry with them, and simply enjoying their entrance into motherhood!

A very fun read !
This book manages to cover some exciting and difficult periods in a woman's life such as getting pregnant ,being pregnant, having a baby ,as well as the always-relevant topic of female friendships of various types. This is more than a "they try for a baby then he betrays her" book -although from the plot summary given here , the reader might believe otherwise. It is a very enjoyable book which I highly recommend.
