I really loved this book. First of all it is so pretty and such an easy book to read. The story is during the 1920's. There are 5 women friends who meet to play bridge together. This one morning 1 does not come and during the game break 2 of the women happen to look out the window of the beautiful hotel they meet at to play and see their friend coming out of the hotel across the street, still in the party clothes she had worn the evening before to a party they had all attentended. To make matters worse, she is with a man, who isn't her husband. Now the friends have to decide if they are going to say anything to anyone. They decide not to mention it again. But one does not keep the secret. This is the story about what can happen when gossip is spread and rumors that may or may not be true. Very good read.
A story of 5 women in 1920s New York and the drama of their relationships. Four of them see the 5th with a man and their decisions about what to say to whom is an interesting story of the repercussions of gossip and secrecy.
