The story revolves around three young mums who first meet at a prenatal yoga class and form a bond that holds fast through all the calmaties that befall their first year of parenting. Although they are from vastly different backgrounds, the common link of a new baby binds them together.
This rang so true for me, some of my greatest friends were new mums at that time in our lives and we still stay in contact 21 years later even though we live thousands of miles apart.
Another mum is welcomed into this group, she has lost a baby and lost herself. Her part in the story lifted it out of being just a routine day to day saga, into something with more depth.
If you enjoyed 'Little Earthquakes', try 'The Reading Group' by Jennifer Noble, a similar style of novel but with the added benefit of book recommendations throughout.
'LITTLE EARTHQUAKES' is the story of four very different women who form a bond and a friendship over the ups and downs of new motherhood. Becky Rothstien-Robinowitz is trying to cope with the challenges of being a working mother as well as dealing with her mother-in-laws overbearing ways. However, her new friends teach her that her problems are no where near as bad as she thinks. Ayinde is beautiful, rich and married to the Philadelphia 76ers start player. From the outside it looks as though she has it all but soon her world is turned upside down, not only by her newborn son Julian but by her husbands infidelity as well. Kelly has had her life planned out since she was a little girl and thus far everything has gone according to plan. She has a successful husband and a successful career of her own. Now all she needs it the baby to round out her picture perfect life. But when her husband gets laid off and Kelly is forced to return to work earlier than expected she finds that the picture of her life is not so perfect after all. Then there is Lia, the mysterious woman who seems to be stalking Becky and her group of friends. But when the ladies find out Lia's secret it will bond these four women forever.
Jennifer Weiner is a great author with a great voice and I have never read a novel of hers that disappointed. LITTLE EARHTQUAKES' is a novel that explores not only new motherhood but also the relationships that women share with their mothers and trying to balance family and career. This is a novel that all women, not just mothers or mothers-to-be can relate to and it is definitely one of Weiner's best.
