The Saving Graces is an excellent story, well written, with good characterization. The plot is straightforward, with a little twist. I never put this book down. The strong theme of enduring friendships of women runs throughout the tale.

This book will make you long for the type of friendships Gaffney has created. I was not able to put the book down in certain parts, but in others, the story seemed to drag. Some supporting characters are painted too broadly. Still a good read!

Good "chick" book about friendship between four women over a period of ten years and how they grow together.

Really sounded like a book I would love, but I didn't...and I really tried. I finished it but only because it's what I do. Even as it wrapped up, I had very little interest in what happened to them. Personally, I don't feel the author helped me to get to know them very well or care about them. I didn't feel they had any depth. I wouldn't recommend this book.

Note: I just read all the other reviews and I have to admit that I am flabbergasted. Wow. I did NOT get that at all from this book.

I enjoyed this chick lit novel aimed towards more middle-aged women. It was a nice story of four women who are all friends. It was a little _Sex and the City_-ish, but more mature and less humourous, but overall, it was entertaining and it was nice how each chapter came from a different P.O.V. It would be a good book for a book club.

For 10 years, Emma, Rudy, Lee, and Isabel have shared a deep affection that has helped them deal with the ebb and flow of expectations and disappointments common to us all. Calling themselves the Saving Graces, the quartet is united by understanding, honesty, and acceptance-a connection that has grown stronger as the years go by... Though these sisters of the heart and soul have seen it all, talked through it all, Emma, Rudy, Lee, and Isabel will not be prepared for a crisis of astounding proportions that will put their love and courage to the ultimate test.
