I really enjoyed The Perfect Mother- what a great listen. I've been in a listening rut and this book put life back into my earbuds. The story is all about the characters, and the author does a great job drawing out each one, telling her story, tangling the lies and then unravelling the truth. The story is told from the point of view of several members of the May Mothers mommy group, a Brooklyn gathering of pregnant and new moms who meet regularly for friendship and support. None of our mothers is exactly who she presents herself to be, and the subtle competition, comparisons and compulsions of these women in their roles as friends, mothers, wives and working moms are fascinating. The underlying mystery is taut, compelling and not as simple as it may seem on the surface. The narrator did an excellent job creating the individual voices and accents and bringing the characters to life- very impressive, and I'll be looking for more from this narrator. Bravo on a great book and a very enjoyable performance. Highly recommended.
