From the bestselling author of The Wife and The Position, a feverishly smart novel about female ambition, motherhood, and marriage -- and four friends who confront the choices they've made.

For a group of four New York friends the past decade has been defined largely by marriage and motherhood, but it wasn't always that way. Growing up, they had been told that their generation would be different. And for a while this was true. They went to good colleges, and began high-powered careers. But after marriage and babies, for a variety of reasons, they decided to stay home, temporarily, to raise their children. Now, ten years later, they are still at home, unsure how they came to inhabit lives so different from the ones they expected -- until a new series of events begins to change the landscape of their lives yet again, in ways they couldn't have predicted.
