Reeling from deceptions involving the people she loves, Poppy feels as if her world has tipped sideways. Maybe her colleague Annalise is right - Poppy needs to let loose and blow off some steam. What better way to vent than social media? With Annalise, she creates a private Facebook group that quickly takes off. Suddenly, Poppy feels like she's back in control. She has a place in the world again and she's learning that her life choices are worth celebrating - until someone begins leaking the group's private posts and stirring up a nasty backlash, shattering her confidence. Feeling judged by disapproving female colleagues and her own disappointed children, Frankie, too, is careening toward a breaking point. She also knows something about her boss - sensitive knowledge that she feels guilty holding back. As things begin to slide disastrously out of control, carefully concealed secrets and lies are exposed with devastating consequences - forcing these women to face painful truths about their lives and the things they do to survive.… (més)

Not... good. I think Nicola has the talent to do better, and needs a better editor. Just... not good. ( )

Those Other Women by Nicola Moriarty is a 2018 Penguin publication.

A timely and cautionary tale-

When Poppy is informed by her life-long friend that she and Poppy’s husband have been having an affair, which has resulted in a pregnancy, Poppy is blindsided. It’s not just the affair, it’s that she and her husband had both agreed they didn’t want kids. Now she’s being told that he really did want kids after all.
When Poppy makes a new friend, Annalise, they decide to create a private Facebook group for women without kids- a direct response to a similar group for women who do have children. It’s supposed to be a supportive kind of group, but the comments become mean and vitriolic in no time flat. To make matters worse, there is a mole in the group. Before long the members of the two Facebook groups start and all -out war with one another, and Poppy, who never intended for any of that to happen, gets caught in the middle of it. Meanwhile, Annalise is harboring an explosive secret that, if discovered, could end her friendship with Poppy.

Social media is a wonderful place to find like-minded people, to receive and give advice, to support people, to get support. But, there is a dark side of social media, as we all know, and it can quickly get out of control. This is a story that reminds us that even if we think we have a safe place to vent our frustrations, you can not completely count on privacy and you might want to temper yourself before serious damage is done.
It is also a story that highlights the various choices women have today and the way some judge others for choosing a path different from theirs. Many women today have chosen to pass on motherhood for many reasons. Others embrace motherhood, while still pursuing a demanding career, while others stay at home. Every one of these options are perfectly fine. But, some non-mothers feel left out, looked down on, as though choosing to forego parenthood is a sin, or that there is something fundamentally wrong with them. I have heard them lament about working moms getting special treatment or extra time off during the work day so they can take care of a sick child or pick their kids up for school or daycare. Mothers may feel entitled to take that time and are unapologetic about missing an important meeting or causing someone else to have to work late or increasing the workload for someone already feeling overwhelmed. I’ve actually heard these arguments, and honest frustrations from both sides. is why I say this novel is timely. It is also so realistic I could really see something like this happening.

As we will see, both sides have legit arguments, but instead of working through those issues like adults they lash out, pout, and point fingers and hold grudges. Presumptions and pre-conceived notions, as well, as gossip, secrets, lies and misunderstandings all aided by the rapid, and toxic atmosphere on social media nearly culminated in the ultimate cat fight. But, without giving too much away, the ladies on both sides of the pond will discover how petty their worries really are.
I loved the way this story ended. Ladies, we are all on the same team here. We all experience difficulties on a daily basis because we are women. The last thing we need is a bunch of infighting. Let’s be good to each other, support each other, and most importantly let’s respect each other. You never know what someone is going through or what challenges they are facing. In the big scheme of things, working through our differences so that we can help people in far more serious circumstances is a goal we should all strive of achieve. Count your blessings and give your sisters in spirt a virtual hug and a little encouragement.
