THE NEW YORK TIMES
Caroline has been married three times and has five daughters--all very different from her. Now that they are grown, she feels distant from them and the woman she once thought herself to be. Caroline's daughters love their mother but live as if she weren't around, exploring their own unpredictable lives, making mistakes, borrowing each other's men, and turning into the kind of women their mother could never have foreseen.
"An immensely satisfying book...with all the breadth and much of the appeal of Adams's memorable SUPERIOR WOMEN."
From the Paperback edition.
