Lanie Coates' life is spinning out of control. She's piled everything she owns into a U-Haul and driven with her husband, Peter, and their three little boys from their cozy Texas home to a multiflight walkup in the Northeast. She's left behind family, friends, and a comfortable life, all so her husband can realize his dream of becoming a professional musician. But somewhere in the eye of her personal hurricane, it hits Lanie that she once had dreams too.
These days, Lanie always seems to rank herself dead last, and when another mom accidentally criticizes her appearance, it's the final straw. Fifteen years, three babies, and more pounds than she's willing to count since the day she said "I do", Lanie longs desperately to feel like her old self again. Lanie sets change in motion, joining a gym, signing up for photography classes, and finding a new best friend. But she also creates waves that come to threaten her whole life. In the end, Lanie must figure out once and for all how to find herself without losing everything else in the process.

Funny and comforting

Better than I had hoped it would be
Comforting and simple but I enjoyed it
Nothing to unnerve me or to dread within

a light book that makes you think

I enjoyed this light book that deals with the common problems in marriage: balancing selfishness versus giving, time alone and time with children, keeping desire alive, finding meaning in one's life as a woman and mother. It is well written and entertaining, and it was a great holiday audiobook.

Lost in Motherhood

Haunting, wholly identifiable and at times ground shaking; A true recounting of loosing pieces of yourself to motherhood. A bit racy at all the right moments. Slow to start but enthralling at the end. I continue to wonder about the characters.
