Daisy Shoemaker can’t sleep. With a thriving cooking business, full schedule of volunteer work, and a beautiful home in the Philadelphia suburbs, she should be content. But her teenage daughter can be a handful; her husband can be distant, her work can feel trivial, and she has lots of acquaintances, but no real friends. Still, Daisy knows she’s got it good. So why is she up all night?
While Daisy tries to identify the root of her dissatisfaction, she’s also receiving misdirected emails meant for a woman named Diana Starling, whose email address is just one punctuation mark away from her own. While Daisy’s driving carpools, Diana is chairing meetings. While Daisy’s making dinner, Diana’s making plans to reorganize corporations. Diana’s glamorous, sophisticated, single-lady life is miles away from Daisy’s simpler existence. When an apology leads to an invitation, the two women meet and become friends. But, as they get closer, we learn that their connection was not completely accidental. Who IS this other woman, and what does she want with Daisy?
First I want to thank Simon audio for the alc and Goodreads for my paperback copy for a honest review. This book hit me in a way, I didn’t really expect. There should be more women that come and speak up about what happened. I know its hard for some people to hear. It needs to be heard. I felt like me and Daisy had a lot in common, except the part about what her husband did, just how he acts. The narrator Sutton Foster did a amazing job. I loved her voice. There were a few changes, but I thank that’s because i had the advance copy for the paperback, not the final copy. What would you do in daisy shoes if that happened to you? I’m not sure what i would do, i know i couldn’t handle it that’s for sure. RATING: Overall:🐕🐕🐕🐕 narrator: 🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕 storyline:🐕🐕🐕🐶
