I finally read a new book that I enjoyed! It had been a while. You can always count on Jennifer Weiner for a good read. Her latest, just out in July, is about four women with separate lives who are interconnected. They are different ages, live in the same general geographic area, and are from different backgrounds. The book alternates chapters about each woman until they start to get woven together.
I really enjoyed the stories of each woman–one a college student who donates her eggs, one a middle class woman who becomes a surrogate for extra money, and one a woman trying to have a baby. The fourth is the step-daughter of the woman trying to have a baby who didn’t like the step-mother and her motives for wanting a child.
I found each woman intriguing and likeable and I wanted to keep reading. Although it wasn’t a smashing ending, I still thought it was a page turner that I enjoyed and didn’t want to end. It’s always the sign of a good book when I want to keep reading but stop so it won’t end.
