Let's take our discussion over to the other side of Shadyside - to Highland Ave and Buffalo Blues. See you there!
For August, we will read Nearlyweds by Beth Kendrick. Here's the synopsis from amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Nearlyweds-Beth-Kendrick/dp/0743499603/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1343652231&sr=8-1&keywords=nearlyweds).com:
Some say the first year of marriage is the hardest. Three recent brides--Casey, Erin, and Stella--are finding that the honeymoon phase passes pretty quickly. Casey thinks she may have married an immature jerk who wasn't ready to commit. Erin realizes that she's married not only to her husband but also to her conniving mother-in-law. And Stella finds out her dreams of having a child are not going to come true when her husband tells her he's had a vasectomy. When the three brides discover that, thanks to a filing glitch, their marriages are not official, they realize it may be a blessing in disguise. This is a funny, sweet book about the power of female support systems and the ups-and-downs of marriage. Kendrick mixes in a few twists and turns to keep readers guessing about which of three marriages will make it. Then, by the last few pages, there are enough happy endings to go around.
