Do you know what it's like give 100 percent and still feel like it's not, and you're not, enough for anybody? To be caught between caring for an aging parent and raising young children?

Ivy Schneider lives in this place, too, and she isn't at all happy about it. Her husband, Rusty, spends 10 months a year on the road singing in a gospel quartet, and her mom gets sicker every day, requiring increasingly more care and time. Ivy's dad took off years ago but still comes around for free meals. Her brother and sister are more than happy to let responsibility rest on Ivy's shoulders. Maybe she could handle it all if only her darling three-year-old terror, Trixie, would just go on the potty. Who will take care of Ivy while she takes care of the world? No one, it seems.

Then Ivy runs an ad in the paper to find folks like her: women of the sandwich generation, squeezed between the demands of raising young children and caring for an aging parent. Soon, she and the other women of Club Sandwich are building uncommonly deep friendships, witnessing the reality that in fact no woman can be everything to everybody, and discovering firsthand that they can do more than they imagined possible with the help of each other and with a strong dose of faith.

    " This was a fun read for the most part with some good human interaction and how we all need and feel the same things, just in different ways. "

    " I read this book a while ago and really enjoyed it. I felt like I was right there with all of those characters. I also liked that the christian life was presented in an everyday, realistic way that the majority of us can relate to. "

    " Listened to the audio book. Enjoyed it but the situation was artificial and somewhat contrived. The exploration of the sandwich generation issues was good, but didn't all quite work. "

    " This was quite an interesting novel. I felt bad for the main character because she had so much on her plate. Reading this book made me tired.
    I liked the idea behind it that everyone needs some support from family and friends. "
