This is another one of those books that I could read over and over again... and I have.
Joy Fielding has this amazing ability to present female characters, that are in bad situations, and seem weak, but when faced with these situations, they fight back, and will do anything to improve their situations, and fight for happiness for themselves and people around them.
This seems like a common theme in all her books.
I am not a mother, so a book about somebody with two daughters (one young adult and one teenager) that has been through a divorce, isn't something I have experience with. It's not really needed when I read her books though. I experience things through the characters. I don't always agree with the way things are handled, but I pretty much know things will be better in the end. It's a nice feeling some days.
