    3. The Mother-in-Law Diaries by Carol Dawson is a great book about a woman who has become something she has never really thought about being. She has become a mother-in-law. She has had four of them and she tries to get her son, Tristan to understand the meaning of being a mother-in-law. She thinks back on her previous marriages and remembers her ex-mother-in-laws. This book is written in a diary form, telling the stories of her previous marriages and explaining what happens when you say "I will". [...]

    4. What did I think of this book? Well, I read it to the end, quickly, I might add. And now that I am in my 60s, I don't waste my time reading books I don't enjoy.

    5. I allowed the blurb’s mention of wit, funny & hilarious to mislead me. Using the frame of potential future mothers-in-law as a child, then her own thru several marriages & finally herself in that role, she writes a journal about her life. It’s addressed to her oldest son, but she decides about half way through that she can never show it to him. I thought it sad overall, with some interesting characters.

    8. Funny at moments but I wanted it to be more funny. I wanted to like the main character more but it was hard because she makes such magnificently bad choices. Pretty prose.

    9. I read this for a book group. A pleasant and sometimes funny book about a woman who, over the course of her life, has many mothers-in-law.
