Siracusa by Delia Ephron. Taylor and her husband Finn have decided to travel to Sicily with another couple, Lizzie and Michael. Before the trip, Taylor, a working mom with a daughter named Snow, takes a moment to discuss the upcoming trip with her friend April.

"What's really wrong with Lizzie," said April, "is that she doesn't have children. Women who don't have children are entirely different from those of us that do."

 "She's nice to Snow," I said.

"Nice isn't what I'm talking about. This may be a terrible thing to say, but women without children are emotionally stunted. They lack depth."
