Little Earthquakes

By Jennifer Weiner; Jennifer Weiner (Read by)

Simon & Schuster Audio, Compact Disc, Abridged, 9780743566803

Publication Date: July 30, 2007

Four very different women navigate one of life's most wonderful and perilous transitions: the journey of new motherhood.
Rebecca Rothstein Rabinowitz is a plump, sexy chef who has a wonderful husband, a restaurant that's received citywide acclaim, a beautiful baby girl and the mother-in-law from hell. Kelly Day's life looks picture-perfect. But behind the doors, she's struggling to balance work, motherhood and marriage, while dealing with an unemployed husband who seems content to channel-surf for eight hours a day. Ayinde Towne's already on shaky ground, when her basketball superstar husband breaks her trust at the most vulnerable moment in her life, putting their marriage in peril -- and thrusting their new family further into the public eye. Then there's Lia Frederick, a Philadelphia native who has left Los Angeles behind, along with her glamorous Hollywood career, her husband, and a tragic secret.
With her trademark warmth and humor, Weiner tells the story of what happens after happily ever after.
