Some days Nora Nolan thinks that she and her husband, Charlie, lead a charmed life--except when there's a crisis at work, a leak in the roof at home, or a problem with their twins at college. And why not? New York City was once Nora's dream destination, and her clannish dead-end block has become a safe harbor, a tranquil village amid the urban craziness. Then one morning she returns from her run to discover that a terrible incident has shaken the neighborhood, and the fault lines begin to open: on the block, at her job, especially in her marriage. With humor, understanding, an acute eye, and a warm heart, Anna Quindlen explores what it means to be a mother, a wife, and a woman at a moment of reckoning.… (lisätietoja)

Not my favorite Anna Quindlen, but it had some good moments, especially in Nora's reflections on New York City. The characters didn't feel all that fleshed out, though, and I didn't find even the ones I was supposed to connect with sympathetic very often. ( )

Frankly, this book was boring and I almost didn’t finish it. I couldn’t bring myself to care about Nora or her privileged life; she didn’t come across as relatable at all. Her inner musings about marriage and her feelings toward Charlie weren’t revelatory, and have been said and written about before. I never felt like I got to really now Charlie or her kids other than through the biased viewpoint of Nora. Reading, I felt like I was supposed to dislike Charlie as Nora did, and I felt quite the opposite. ⁣
I honestly don’t know what the point of this book was. It was just pages and pages of Nora talking about her neighbors, what brought her to New York, her job and her dissatisfaction with her marriage. The book often jumps from story to memory and back again, getting especially confusing when it involves the neighbors. ( )

This was an easy and entertaining read, although it very much describes (a phrase the characters use) 'first world problems'. The protagonist, Nora, is likeable, and I enjoyed her relationships with the women in her life: her daughter, her sister, and her friends. The part that didn't work for me was her relationship with her husband Charlie. We were told what a great guy he was, but I didn't feel that we got to know him at all, and I didn't get any sense of their initial romance when they first met.

I will look for other novels by this author. ( )

I read this book because I had recognized Quindlen as a noted author. To be honest, this is not my kind of reading, so I listed it as "chick-lit." I did finish the book and the final chapter tied things together well enough to give it 3 stars. Not great reading for males, I think. A must-read for Quindlen fans. ( )

I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Upper West Side NYC meets with petty neighborhood jealousy. A supposedly well educated and classy group of people squabble over a parking space and what results is a horrific act of violence. This is the premise of Anna Quindlen's new book.

This tale is told beautifully , the author does not disappoint in her writing of this book. The story is so well written in prose that went down like a fine red wine. With that said the book was slow moving for me and while I did enjoy the book and the characters, especially Nora, it just took a while to get into. Nora was my favorite character, I would love to have her job, my dream job has always been to work in a museum and live in NYC. Would I love to be married to Charlie? No thanks ! The author examines and delves into the heart of this family and what it takes for Nora to keep it all together as a wife, mother and working woman. As Nora's life unravels her character becomes stronger and this is what I took away from this story; as women we are separate beings as well as mothers and wives.

While this book was about a tragic incident it was also a story about a woman who finds out whi she really is and what she really wants in life.This review was originally posted on My Fiction Obsession ( )

She'd realized that that was how life was, that certain small moments were like billboards forever alongside the highway of your memory.
The truth was that some of their marriages were like balloons: a few went suddenly pop, but more often than not the air slowly leaked out until it was a sad, wrinkled little thing with no life to it anymore.
People go through life thinking they're making decisions, when they're really just making plans, which is not the same thing at all.
Marriage vows, Nora had long felt, constituted a loyalty oath.
All her friends said women left because they were unhappy, and men left because they'd found someone new to be unhappy with.
