Women Like Us
Susan Jones, a brash and ballsy chef who hopscotches from one demanding restaurant job to the next, was barely in her twenties when she married and had a son, Henry. But after her marriage to Andrew fell apart, she ceded most of the raising of the baby to her mother-in-law, the very opinionated Edith Vale, a woman as formidable and steely as her stiff blond bouffant, the veritable helmet that helps her soldier through life. Now, after letting Henry drift away, Susan is determined to make things right. But just as mother and son seem to make headway after embarking on a cross-country road trip, things take a dark turn. When the family reconvenes in California, everybody must fight to find courage and humor in the face of a situation that threatens to change them all forever.

Praise for this book
"If you have parents, if you have kids, if you have a heart, Jason Pomerance's Women Like Us is the book for you. It's like a great recipe for life: Combine friends, family, and flaws. Add a dash of sibling revelry, a little hate, a lot of love, and food--all kinds of food. Cook it all over the heat from the kitchen, the bedroom, and the face-to-face fights. This book has it all: Heartbreak, second chances, and redemption. And you'll get hungry reading it!" --Charles Dickinson, author of The Widows' Adventures and the time-travel saga, A Shortcut in Time and A Family in Time "Women Like Us is a wonderful and true examination of deep, real human emotion." --Joseph Asphahani, author of The Animal in Man
