Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner

Sylvie Woodruff has been the perfect politician's wife for many years, putting her husband's needs before her own and those of her two daughters, Diana and Lizzie. When news breaks that Richard, Sylvie's spouse, has been having an affair, Sylvie is devastated. Even before the announcement, the now-grown daughters' lives hadn't been going well either. Diana, a doctor, is having a sizzling affair with one of her interns and is in a loveless marriage. Lizzie, always considered the underachiever, is back on her feet after battling a drug problem for years. Could Richard's public scandal cause the three women to re-evaluate their lives and reconnect with themselves and each other? Fly Away Home is another winner from Jennifer Weiner. While the plot may seem tired with all the political scandals in the news, she puts her own spin on the story with her well-drawn characters and touches of humor. It will be published next month.
