Kymberly Dakin does a fine job of unobtrusively narrating the 23-year history of four young mothers who become friends when living on Grand Avenue in a Cincinnati suburb. She lets the story of each of the women take center stage. Chris, an abused wife; Vicki, a successful lawyer; Barbara, a former beauty queen; and Susan, a student, all have daughters the same age. Starting out as a soap opera-ish women's novel as the four experience abuse, betrayal, and success, the story picks up speed when one is murdered and another defends the prime suspect. D.T.H.
