Behind Closed Doors by Sarah Webb provides an interesting insight into the friction that often exists between career women and stay at home mums. Both groups are somewhat self-focussed and have little tolerance of the different choices others have made.

The story focuses on Amy a young woman in a relationship but not ready for the obligations of children. She tries to stay in touch with her friends who are now married with children but finds this difficult, particularly when they show no empathy towards her situation.

The story moves through a few twists and reveals that neither group has the perfect life that they like to portray and that understanding and tolerance would go a long way to making for more peaceful relationships.

Behind Closed Doors is an interesting read and part of the Quick Reads series.
