Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons
Author: Lorna Landvik
The women of Freesia Court are convinced that there is nothing good coffee, delicious desserts, and a strong shoulder can't fix.

This is possibly one of the best books I've ever read! A slide-show of stories twined around the life stories of women in a bookclub. The book takes you from the day they first met until decades later - in a hospital -waiting. Ms. Landvik use of character development is a marvel. I feel as if I not only really know these women, but I think I'm a charter member of their bookclub. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE READ THIS BOOK! You won't be sorry!

I loved this book. It's about women and friendship, motherhood, love & survival. Each character is interesting and Landvik shares enough of them to get you invested in who they are - even the ones you hate. Really well written. Perfect book club reading.

Hilarious! And sad. And a great read. My mom grew up in the neighborhood written about here and so it was great to relive some childhood memories.

A wonderfully charming, endearing, and funny story about five women living on Freesia Court. Their lives cross one night in winter in 1968. They form a friendship that continues to grow with their regular book club meetings.

This is a well written story and alot of fun to read.
