Jennifer Weiner's richest, wittiest, most true-to-life novel yet tells the story of three very different women as they navigate one of life's most wonderful and perilous transitions: the journay of new motherhood.

Becky is a plump, sexy chef who has a wonderfull husband and baby girl, a restaurant that received a citywide acclaim -- and the mother-in-law from hell. Kelly is an event planner who's struggling to balance her work and motherhood while dealing with unemployed husband who seems content to channel-surf for eight hours a day. Ayinde's basketball superstar husband breaks her trust at her most vulnerable moment, putting their new family even more in the public eye. Then, there's Lia, a Philadelphia native who has left her Hollywood career behind, along with her husband, and a tragic secret to start her life all over again.

From prenatal yoga to postbirth sex, Little Earthquakes is a frank, funny, fiercely perceptive take on the comedies and tragedies of love and marriage.

This is one I read on the recommendation of a customer. It is a quick read in two sittings.
Anyone who has ever been pregnant or a new mother will be able to identify with some of these scenarios.
Again, not one I would have reached for on my own.

our women meet in a yoga for pregnant women class, and form a bond despite how different they are.

I always love Jennifer Weiner's books and this one is not an exception.

Babies, babies everywhere, and ne'er a wink of sleep. Ensemble cast of new moms who meet at baby yoga... from all points of the compass socially and economically -- and parenting styles! Touching realism. If you can get past the negative connotations of "chick lit" you might enjoy this. Personally, not my favorite of J. Weiner's works but still has some power.
