    As the novel opens, Kitty and Louise Heaney say good-bye to their boyfriends Julian and Michael, who are going to fight overseas. On the domestic front, meat is rationed, children participate in metal drives, and Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller play songs that offer hope and lift spirits. And now the Heaney sisters sit at their kitchen table every evening to write letters.

    "Wonderful, not sure about the narration"
    Overall

    As an Elizabeth Berg fan, I looked forward to hearing this book. Always before I have read them. Her self narration sometimes seemed emotionally flat, with a strange, constant slow cadence. Toward the end the emotion started to feel more appropriate. All in all, I loved the book and the story was wonderful. It was relevant to me because I'm a post WW2 baby, and heard many stories similar to the ones in the book when I was growing up.

    Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood) is pregnant! She couldn't be more overjoyed, especially since discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has got to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery, to the latest, coolest pram, to the celebrity, must-have obstetrician. But when the celebrity obstetrician turns out to be her husband Luke's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble.

    "least favorite of the series"
    Overall

    I have read/listened to all of Sophie Kinsella's books and look forward to the next one. This is my least favorite for the following reasons: The narrator portrays Luke in a different way from the other books--he comes across as too serious and sometimes mean when in the others he just seemed to be somewhat pleasantly perplexed by Becky. And Becky is inconsistent in her behavior as well--far too fawning over Luke and lacking the spunk that has made the character so appealing. Please--an obstetrician who used to have a relationship with the husband--who would ever consider going back a second time. That was unrealistic. It took me forever to finish listening, many car trips, a couple of flights, and a huge pile of ironing. I still look forward to the next installment of this couple's adventures but hope to see more of the characteristics in the first books.
