Summary
"Twenty-six and broke, Skye didn't think twice before selling her eggs and happily pocketing the cash. Now approaching forty, Skye moves through life entirely--and unrepentantly--on her own terms, living out of a suitcase and avoiding all manner of serious relationships. Her personal life might be a mess, and no one would be surprised if she died alone in a hotel room, but at least she's free to do as she pleases. But then a twelve-year-old girl shows up during one of Skye's brief visits to her hometown of Philadelphia, and tells Skye that she's "her egg." Skye's life is thrown into sharp relief and she decides that it might be time to actually try to have a meaningful relationship with another human being. Spoiler alert: It's not easy. Things get even more complicated when Skye realizes that the woman she tried and failed to pick up the other day is the girl's aunt and now it's awkward. All the while, her brother is trying to get in touch, her problematic mother is being bewilderingly kind, and the West Philly pool halls and hoagie shops of her youth have been replaced by hipster cafes. Told in a fresh, lively voice, this novel is a relentlessly clever, deeply moving portrait of a woman and the relationships she thought she could live without"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"Daisy Shoemaker can't sleep. With a thriving cooking business, full schedule of volunteer work, and a beautiful home in the Philadelphia suburbs, she should be content. But her teenage daughter is rebelling, her husband can be distant, her work can feel trivial, and she's lost the only real friend she's ever had. Still, Daisy knows she's got it good. So why is she up all night? As Daisy starts receiving misdirected emails meant for a woman named Diana Starling, whose address is just one punctuation mark off, she imagines a more glamorous single-lady life, miles away from her own. While Daisy's driving carpools, Diana is traveling the world. While Daisy's making dinner, Diana's making plans to reorganize corporations. An apology leads to an invitation, and the two women meet and become friends. But, as they get closer, we learn that their connection was not completely accidental. Who is Diana, and what does she want with Daisy? From the manicured Main Line of Philadelphia to the wild beaches of the Outer Cape, Jennifer Weiner's vibrant wit and brilliant observations bring to life the story of two strangers who find they can only move forward with their lives by confronting their shared past"--Back cover.

Summary
"On the heels of the election of 2016, Samantha Raymond's life begins to come apart: her mother is ill, her teenage daughter is increasingly remote, and at 52, she finds herself staring into 'the Mids'--that hour of supreme wakefulness between three and four in the morning in which women of a certain age suddenly find themselves contemplating motherhood, mortality, and, in this case, the state of our unraveling nation. When she falls in love with a beautiful, decrepit house in a hardscrabble neighborhood in Syracuse, she buys it on a whim and flees her suburban life--and her family--as she grapples with how to be a wife, a mother, and a daughter, in a country that is coming apart at the seams"-- Provided by publisher.
