Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this promising first novel, Phoebe Martin and Molly Adams are childhood friends whose paths have diverged. While Phoebe attended law school in California and landed a job at a top-notch firm, had a baby and got divorced, Molly returned to their hometown to teach school and develop her skills as a weaver. A hasty wedding is planned when Molly finds herself pregnant. Flying back to Vermont with four-year-old Andrew, Phoebe almost wishes her dictatorial boss had insisted she work around the clock, as usual. As the friends struggle unsuccessfully toward a new understanding, past differences are aired and both women are forced to question the choices they've made thus far. Irritating parenthetic asides slow the reader down, but to her credit, Hyde delves well beneath the surface of Phoebe's superwoman exterior to present a balanced, sometimes painfully funny, assessment of the price she has been paying all along. (May 2)
Library Journal
Phoebe and Molly were warm, close friends growing up together in rural Vermont. Now on the verge of 30, Phoebe, divorced mother of a brattish four-year-old and hardworking associate in a San Francisco law firm, returns home to be matron of honor at Molly's wedding. Molly has remained in Vermont earning her living as a teacher but devoting her true energies to weaving and folk crafts. We quickly learn that both women anticipate their reunion with trepidation, each fearing the judgments the other may make about her way of life. This uncertainty blocks any real communication between them until dramatic events loose words that might better have never been said. Though somewhat drawn out, this is a well-written first novel of contemporary women coming to terms with the paths they have chosen. Recommended. Marion Hanscom, SUNY at Binghamton Lib.
School Library Journal
YA Female friendship is the focus of Hyde's first novel. Phoebe Martin hasn't seen her childhood friend Molly for six years, but she feels that she must go to Molly's wedding back East. Phoebe, a divorced mother of a four-year-old son, is an up-and-coming associate in a prestigious San Francisco law firm. Molly, who has never left New England, teaches tenth-grade science, weaves, and makes quilts. Phoebe's trip is a disaster. Molly is pregnant and fights her mother's wish for a traditional wedding. Phoebe criticizes Molly for wasting her life in the backwoods, while Molly feels that Phobe's work is depriving her of time for herself and her son. Hyde has an excellent eye for detail, and her characters and settings are three-dimensional. While the author is rather heavy on the introspective musings of both Phoebe and Molly, readers will enjoy seeing the modern dilemmas of marriage, motherhood, career, family, and friendship pictured in emotional and empathetic tones.
