Infused with gleaming insight and exceptional grace, here is an affecting debut of ten loosely linked stories that speak volumes of truth about mothers and daughters, girlfriends, and the weird propensity of smart women to choose lousy boyfriends. What About the Love Part? charts the life of a woman named Abby through her challenges in dating, marriage, motherhood, divorce, friendship, and all the shadings in between. Stephanie Rosenfeld offers a delightful glimpse into a world that instantly looks familiar and invites us to feel at home.In “Grasp Special Comb,” Abby, soon-to-be-divorced, is battling that elementary school scourge: head lice. While there are plenty of guides on how to deal with the vermin attacking her daughter, nothing warns about the effect it will have on her ability to deal with life’s other infestations. “Good for the Frog” and “To Sarah, Wherever You Are” are tributes to a childhood friend who helped Abby survive dating hell. From the boyfriend whose lovemaking spurs her to think “I could’ve gone to the gym” to the guy who tells her “I’m a hunter, and you’re the hunted,” Sarah’s support and insight into why Abby is drawn to such inappropriate men steers her back on track. In “Insects in Amber,” Abby wanders through a museum with her daughter, struck by all the ancient remains of animals in glass cases. Reminded of when she was a child and felt compelled to save everything, she wonders why she could never save relationships, save love this way.Evocative, magnetic, and real, What About the Love Part? speaks to every woman’s search for a life rich in meaning, passion, and tenderness. Stephanie Rosenfeld captures it all with piercing clarity and a heartening wit.

I think this book is more like a novel than a collection of short stories, but the poignant and touching memoirs of Abby moved me. The words carried me. Her struggles to overcome the life as a single mother are a departure from the traditional chick lit. Rosenfeld is proficient at creating characters that endears the reader with her unique sense of dry humor and sharp dialogue. I see no reason not to heartily recommend this book to everyone who wants to go beyond the single-woman-looking-for-love-in-the-big-city drivel. I am an avid reader of the aforementioned genre, but it's great to stumble upon a book with a plot that sets it apart from the rest. I can't recommend this book enough...

There are plenty of books out there written by, about and for women who are in the midst of great changes of their lives, but WHAT ABOUT THE LOVE PART gives us something that we so often lack in contemporary fiction -- a skillfully drawn, memorable character.
How Abby goes about her life, trying to put the pieces of it together will certainly resonate with so many us, especially women who continue to find themselves in situations that they helped to create, but aren't sure of how or why they did so.
If Rosenfeld can create such a life in stories, what might she do in her upcoming novel? I can't wait to find out!
