Daughters-in-Law - Joanna Trollope Enjoyed this story of women making the transition from single to wife (and member of a whole new family of in-laws) and mom (center of her children's lives) to mother-in-law and peripheral figure. I have done the first more than once and am likely to have to do the second some day. As always, Trollope delivers believable, interesting characters and dialogue, as well as a well-paced plot and satisfying conclusion. It made me think a lot about what kind of mother-in-law I'll be and whether that will match up with how I think I *should* be.
