Daughters-in-Law by Joanna Trollope

Don't you love having a new book on your hands? No creases, no folds, no blots.....

I was pleasantly surprised that our library acquired new English novels and quite a number to boot. I borrowed two. 

There is always the story since time immemorial between in-laws and new family members not getting along. The book was an easy read. Short description of the story: Mom was the center of everything for her family of 3 boys and husband. Slowly, the children got older, got married. Mom no longer felt wanted, an outcast even. 

Favorite line: 
And most of all, marriage doesn't happen in public.

How true it is. Sure, there are times you see couples making scenes in public (fighting or being intimate). But most stuffs, good and bad, happen behind the scenes.
