Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Rose y Maggie son hermanas, pero solo tienen en comun su numero de zapato. Rose es abogada, responsable, trabajadora... y tiene un penoso historial en sus relaciones de pareja. Maggie es sexy, alocada, sabe como poner a cualquier hombre a sus pies... y su vida profesional es un desastre. Cuando los problemas de Maggie la llevan a refugiarse en casa de su hermana, se suceden los conflictos y surgen viejos reproches dormidos desde la muerte de su madre, cuando ambas eran unas niñas. Mientras, lejos de alli, la anciana Ella decide que quizas ha llegado el momento de recuperar a sus dos nietas, a las que la vida alejo de su lado tantos años atras. La autora del best-seller Bueno en la cama teje una historia tan divertida como conmovedora, una apuesta por el poder del amor, del perdon y de los lazos familiares. A su medida ha sido llevada al cine en una pelicula protagonizada por Cameron Diaz y Shirley MacLaine. / The Feller sisters are equal but opposite. Maggie is the good-looking, dyslexic little sister who knows how to get anything she wants--but not how to keep it. She ""felt as if somewhere between the ages of fourteen and sixteen she'd walked off the edge of a cliff and had been falling ever since."" Rose is the plump, practical, responsible older sister who knows about law but not much about her own happiness: ""What did she like, besides shoes, and Jim, and foods that were bad for her?"" When Maggie's latest eviction lands her in Rose's apartment, and Maggie insults Rose by seducing one of her sister's rare boyfriends, what follows is a chain of events by turns hilarious and heartbreaking. Embarrassed Rose evicts Maggie and begins a work sabbatical leading to a new livelihood and way of living. Maggie flees and runs away to Princeton. Masquerading as a student, she learns to love poetry and saves money for a trip to Miami--and a visit to a long-lost grandmother named Ella who might offer her a last shot at sanctuary. But In Her Shoes, the second novel from Good in Bed author Jennifer Weiner, is about more than the sisters' latest sibling rivalry; Maggie and Rose must sort out the childhood vulnerabilities and family mysteries that still linger two decades after their mother's death. In less capable hands, the plot might grow corny, but Weiner's humor and affection for the characters ultimately helps them transcend both neuroses and grief and learn the redemptive power of love.
