Read in April, 2005

The narrator is a woman named Lia who went to Hollywood at 18 to make it big, but has returned to her hometown under slightly mysterious circumstances having undergone some kind of loss. She observes a group of women in the park who are all expecting babies...

...and then the next several chapters of the book follows the stories of the pregnant women, the births of their babies, and the ways their lives change following the babies' arrivals.

The characters are all clearcut individuals without being "the smart one!" "the cute one!" or any dopey stereotypes like that. While the ending of the book is a little too neatly tied up, it doesn't feel unrealistic. I found myself liking the characters and wanting to know more about them.
