The Secret Lives of Women (Book Review)

Fly Away Home - Jennifer Weiner B
Publication Date: July 2010

Fly Away Home is surprisingly sad but entertaining. It's the story of three women (a mother and her two daughters) at the crossroads; Sylvie- the politician's wife, Diana - the overachieving (super freaky) older daughter, and Lizzie- a recovering addict with good intentions.

I got a little bored with Sylvie about half way through; however, Diana and Lizzie more than made up for that. On the surface, this will remind you of several scandalized politicians, their fractured lives and public humiliation. But underneath you will find an emotional story of longing, lust and self-discovery.
