Daisy by Josi Kilpack

This is the Second Book in the Newport Ladies Book Club.  The first was Olivia.  I was super excited to read it!

About Daisy
Motherhood is not for the faint of heart. And no one knows that better than Daisy. Raising two kids as a divorced, single mom, Daisy has faced each and every one of the obstacles in her life with courage and determination.
Now with her oldest daughter ready to have a baby of her own, her youngest daughter ready to graduate from high school, and her new husband, Paul, ready to embrace the life of an empty-nester, Daisy feels like she might finally be able to check "motherhood" off her list of things to do.
Except life often has a mind of its own. When, at age of forty-six, Daisy suddenly finds herself facing a very different future than the one she had planned--and an uncomfortable evaluation of the past she thought she understood--she realizes that there is still some growing up she needs to do.
Looking for a distraction to escape the growing tension at home, Daisy joins the Newport Ladies Book Club, where she meets Paige, Athena, and Olivia--unlikely friends who offer encouragement and support when Daisy's perfectly crafted life is turned upside-down.

My Thoughts
Wow!  I can't even begin to imagine how Daisy felt getting pregnant for the third time without meaning to!  Especially after trying to comfort a coworker who just had a failed IVF treatment!  She was having a hard time with her teenage daughter and then to add a surprise pregnancy would be hard!  Her oldest daughter was having her first baby at the same time too!  Luckily she had a support group in the newly started book club.  Without them, I'm sure she wouldn't have done well.  Since I'm eight months pregnant, I could tell she was pregnant and was sad that she put off knowing as long as she did!  She had a rough go of it with her family and husband.  I really want to see what happens next!  It was a wonderful way to learn more about the ladies of the group and lead into their individual books! It's amazing to me how well this book series goes together, with it being the same time frame and all!  What an amazing group of writers!  I'm looking very much forward to Paige and Athena!  I'm also hoping we get to read more about all of the members of the book club, since they are all so very different!  I love that it helps bring together a group of ladies that probably would have never been friends otherwise!  This is a great clean book with hardly any LDS themes in it.  Great for all!
