As Anthony and Rachel Brinkley welcome their third daughter-in-law to the family, they don't quite realize the profound shift that is about to take place. For different reasons, the Brinkleys' two previous daughters-in-law hadn't been able to resists Rachel's maternal control and Anthony's gentle charm and had settled into their husbands' family without rocking the boat. But Charlotte - very young, very beautiful, and spoiled - has no intention of falling into step with the Brinkleys and wants to establish her own household.

Soon Rachel's sons begin to think of their own houses as home and of their mother's house as simply the place where their parents live - a necessary and inevitable shift of loyalties that threatens Rachel's sense of herself, breaks Anthony's heart, and causes unexpected consequences in all the marriages. Then a crisis brings these changes to the surface, and everyone has to learn what family love means all over again.

    " I am so wishing [again] for 1/2 stars! I thought this a very intelligent and well-written book--a solid 3 1/2, but considering some of the books I've rated a 3, I'll upgrade this to 4. "

    " Daughters-in-law was a great book with such down to earth characters, I just loved how the author described them so succinctly; from what they were doing to what they were thinking and feeling, it was almost as if I were watching a movie. The book was about an aging couple used to running the show for their two married sons and their wives. Until their third son marries a girl who isn't about to let her in-laws make all the decisions for them and then they all discover that things weren't so rosy in the elder brother's marriages after all. A great read! "

    " Recommend it for anyone with less than perfect relationships with their mother-in-law. Characters were believable and the book seeks to look at the problem of in-law relationships from all angles. "
