"This is a Borzoi book"--Title page verso.
"Read with Jenna"--Jacket.
Ex-New Yorker Elisabeth, an accomplished journalist and new mother, is struggling to adjust to life in a small town. Alone in the house with her infant son all day, she feels uneasy, adrift. She neglects her work, losing untold hours to her Brooklyn moms' Facebook group, her "influencer" sister's Instagram feed, and text messages with the best friend she never sees anymore. She hires Sam, a senior at the local women's college, to babysit. Sam is struggling with a romantic entanglement that threatens her ambition, her student loan debt, and her what the future holds. When Sam finds a kindred spirit in Elisabeth's father-in-law, differences in the women's lives are revealed, and a betrayal has devastating consequences. -- adapted from jacket

Summary / Annotation
Enjoyable if you can relate submitted by kirterry on August 16, 2020, 8:27pm You might appreciate this book as much as I did if you're a new mom (especially if you're a member of the Ann Arbor Mamas Facebook group). If not, it's still an entertaining novel with some (not too surprising) plot twists.
