Summary
What happens when a New York suburban mom grabs a much needed get away from her family and ends up trading places with her single, 40-something sister in LaLa land? Chaos ensues as life gets turned upside down for these sisters who took very different paths. Our heroine, Natalie, a 44-year-old wife and mother from Long Island, complains about her life being "too much mommy, not enough me." She gets more than she bargained for when she takes over her sister's copy shop in Santa Monica, including an infatuation that comes close to crossing the line. While Natalie is finding herself out West, her sister, Drey, finds life in suburbia with two kids a bit dicier than she imagined: a runaway niece, a cantankerous mother, a delicious romance and sexcapades in the most unexpected places. Getaway Mom moves at a fast pace between the coasts through both narrative and the sisters' e-mail confessionals. Mixing humor and insight, the novel explores the choices women make about family and work, and how they cope-or don't. The Getaway Mom authors must have been listening in while I've coached hundreds of stay at home Moms who feel something is missing from their very full lives. In their main character they capture the frustrations, lack of confidence, fear and confusion women feel when they start to think about returning to work and the subsequent joy they feel when they realize they are still competent, intelligent individuals with much to contribute
