Two summers ago, I discovered author Jennifer Weiner and whiled away a cottage weekend reading Best Friends Forever (naturally a tale of two best friends). Then last summer, another cottage weekend was entirely occupied by Fly Away Home, a story of a mother and two daughters who find themselves closer than they ever have been after a series of complicated family problems.
So this summer I was excited to discover that Jennifer’s writing has kept up with my reading (because summer seems to be the only time I can actually get through an entire book) and that she had a new title that addresses surrogacy, egg donorship, the rights of a parent and what it means to be a mother, through a fast-moving story of that brings together the lives of some fascinating characters—a student, a housewife and a socialite.
We’ve got five copies to give away to you, dear readers, so just leave a comment here about your favourite place to read in the summer (the hammock, the dock, the treehouse?) until August 31, 2011, and we will conduct a random draw from all of them.
Congrats to our winners: Karen W., Zoe K., Sheryl M., Tammy C. and Kim B.
