I’ll Take What She Has by Samantha Wilde
“Correction: you’re voluptuous, like one of those ancient mother goddess sculptures, but that is not why I’m going out of my way to compliment you. It’s your attitude I’m talking about. Your natural disposition with the kids. You’re good at it, the way some people are naturally good doctors, or naturally good cooks. Sometimes it feels so hard to me.” And then she started to cry big, blubbering, snotty tears. ~Pg 56
Just started this book last night after Entangled. Can’t wait to dig into it deeper!
Nora and Annie have been best friends since kindergarten. Nora, a shy English teacher at a quaint New England boarding school, longs to have a baby. Annie, an outspoken stay-at-home mother of two, longs for one day of peace and quiet (not to mention more money and some free time). Despite their very different lives, nothing can come between them—until Cynthia Cypress arrives on campus.
Cynthia has it all: brains, beauty, impeccable style, and a gorgeous husband (who happens to be Nora’s ex). When Cynthia eagerly befriends Nora, Annie’s oldest friendship is tested. Now, each woman must wrestle the green-eyed demon of envy and, in the process, confront imperfect, mixed-up family histories they don’t want to repeat. Amid the hilarious and harried straits of friendship, marriage, and parenthood, the women may discover that the greenest grass is right beneath their feet.
