Bestselling author Jennifer Weiner creates a tale of romance, forgiveness, and extreme sleep deprivation, as four very different women navigate one of life's most wonderful and perilous transitions: the journey of new motherhood.


Rebecca Rothstein Rabinowitz is a plump, sexy chef who has a wonderful husband, a restaurant that's received citywide acclaim, a beautiful baby girl and the mother-in-law from hell.

Kelly Day's life looks picture-perfect. But behind the doors, she's struggling to balance work, motherhood and marriage, while dealing with an unemployed husband who seems content to channel- surf for eight hours a day.

Ayinde Towne's already on shaky ground, when her basketball superstar husband breaks her trust at the most vulnerable moment in her life, putting their marriage in peril -- and thrusting their new family further into the public eye.

Then there's Lia Frederick, a Philadelphia native who has left Los Angeles behind, along with her glamorous Hollywood career, her husband, and a tragic secret.

With her trademark warmth and humor, Weiner tells the story of what happens after happily ever after.

    Publishers Weekly

  • “ Immensely readable… Weiner's gift lies in her ability to create characters who both amuse us and make us care. ”

    Washington Post

  • “ Hilarious, heartbreaking, and insightful. ”

    Miami Herald

  • “Weiner seamlessly and gracefully weaves the four women's stories together. The fact that her second novel, In Her Shoes (2002), is being made into a movie…should draw plenty of readers; once they pick up the book, they'll find a warm, often funny, touching look at the challenges and joys of new motherhood and marriage.”

    " ZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz... vapid, one-dimensional, sterotypical, uninspiring characters leading boring lives going nowhere. Bonus - several key "plot" devices were stunningly unrealistic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Tracy Sibole | 2/6/2014

    " I read this while I was pregnant and really enjoyed it. I read it again recently, when my daughter was about 8 or 9 months old, and I appreciated it much more. It was better the second time simply because I could connect even more to the characters because I was going through exactly what they were going through in the book. Definitely a good read! "
