This was a surprisingly moving book. I was just expecting run of the mill women's fiction, but there's more to it. It's about five women, all young wives and mothers who meet and become friends in 1967 in Palo Alto. What makes it so special is that you get to experience all of the amazing things that occurred in the late sixties and early seventies through them. You forget how many momentous events took place during those years - the moon landing, the women's rights movement, the Civil Rights movement. And the women are all amateur writers who actually find success. Dr. Suess even makes an (off-stage) appearance! Very satisfying.
