Summary
Eleanor Flood is going to re-examine her life, clean up her act, get dressed, only change into yoga clothes for yoga, which today she will actually attend, and be a better version of herself, all in one day
Summary
I went into Today Will Be Different expecting the mockery of Seattle’s ridiculous idiosyncrasies What I got was different, but just as good. Eleanor is sympathetic and the story revolves around family conflicts and disappointments, as well as Eleanor’s awareness of the inevitability of aging and its effects on herself and marriage. Her relationships with those closest to her are also the ones with the most secrets, and with the potential for the most harm and the most hope. I’d recommend this to readers who love family-centric women’s fiction with a sharp eye for the quirks of marriage and parenting. -- Jessica Werner for LibraryReads
