The women aren't all likable, but they are authentic, and each story explores single motherhood, body obsession, and the search for meaningful love.

"Kwasney's protagonists are distinctive and empathetic, her narratives meticulously structured and realistic, exposing the unpredictability—and sometimes unfairness—that life can bring."

"...Kwasney effectively develops her characters into multidimensional personalities, convincing in their strengths and weakness..."
