Lately all I have time to read with work and my graduate work is kids books and Facebook newsfeed. But, as an English major and book lover, I need to set more time aside for my own reading. I recently got an advanced copy of Driving Lessons by Zoe Fishman which is being released by Harper Collins this week and it sounds great. Check out this book description:
When Sarah and her husband trade in a crowded commute, cramped apartment, and high stress New York City jobs for life the slow lane in Farmwood, VA, the pressure is on to have a baby. At thirty-six Sarah knows it’s time to get started, but the pressure she’s putting on herself to reach a rather unrealistic pinnacle of self-fulfillment beforehand looms large. Meanwhile, her best friend Mona, a single and successful editor who’s always wanted children, is diagnosed with cervical cancer. At the same time, Sarah’s younger and seemingly perfect sister-in-law has just given birth to her son, Franklin. When Sarah uproots her new life with her husband in Virginia to return to New York to take care of Mona, the three women, both directly and indirectly, help each other navigate their new realities.
