The Mother-in-LawThe Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m always leery of books with “Mother-In-Law” in the title, because I don’t like the idea of mothers in law being vilified. (I’m not one, by the way!) But the second Diana, in her narrative, referred to her friends as “new friends” though she’d know them thirty years, I fell in love with her. I feel like this author gave me a keen understanding into peculiar people I’ve known my whole life. I connected intensely with so many lines in this book that it felt like the author knew me personally. This was my first book by her, and I immediately downloaded another after I finished this one.
