Annabel Ford, Piper Whitley, and Mackenzie Mead are three women at different places in their lives who have forged a friendship over a weekly exercise and the requisite trip to the next door cafe after their sessions. The three women are at different places in their lives. Piper's boyfriend, Todd, just moved in with her and her young daughter, Fern. But when her Fern's dad reappears it threatens their new-found domestic bliss. Mackenzie and her husband, Trevor, have been married a while and are desperate to start their family. Will their relationship crumble under the stress of infertility? Annabel has her world rocked when her husband tells her that she wants a divorce. Will she be left to raise their twin sons alone? Some Women tackles some heavy topics, but the heart of the story is the relationship between these three unlikely friends.
Some Women is one of those feel-good novels that will leave you wanting what they have. Not their romantic relationships, but their friendship. One thing I noticed, though, was that in terms of time, their friendships were relatively new, yet there was a bond between the three of them that couldn't be broken. Not everyone is as quick to make friends as Anabel, Mackenzie, and Piper, so I think it gives a little bit of hope that your "people" are out there waiting to be found. I was surprised by which romantic relationships were able to withstand the kind of stress we all face in our own relationships. Over the course of the book all three women changed for the better, too. I think Annabel probably changed the most and definitely for the better. I had a hard time even liking her at the beginning of the book. \ Some Women was a quick read, but definitely a fun read.
Bottom line - Some Women is a great friendship novel to read with your friends and discuss over a bottle of wine.
