3or 4 stars. It was a good read -- the author did an excellent job of setting up the background and giving you the feelings of these women. I felt like I could really identify. Also, I loved how these characters helped each other. I felt like I'd like to know them.

Truly excellent. I loved how accurate Debbie Macomber is when describing the different women - it's as if she has had experience with all the women's situations. Really good book.

Great book! A story about 4 women at different points in their lives, but who found a common bond with each other. Each one's story was interesting and believeable. Debbie Macomber was able to keep the story lines interesting, yet simple to read. Some authors would have really over written this type of story. Very good, hated to see it end!

A great Debbie Macomber book where four interesting women meet on Thursdays at eight and share their lives. As she weaves the story, I found that I, too, was like a member of the "group" and laughed with them and shed a tear, too.

While I thought this was a good story, it didn't really drag me in. It is good, I liked the characters, but I guess it was her style of writing. I expected more.

4 women meet at a journal writing class and decide to continue getting together after. The only time they can all get together is for breakfast on Thursdays. They each write their chapter, their story, and they intertwine. Again, I did like it, just didn't LOVE it.

At first I thought it was a slow start, as this story is about four very different women who have become friends, and they are first introduced to the reader through their daily journal writing. Then it developed into a regular writing style with dialog and became quite good. I enjoyed this book very much and anxiously awaited the outcome of each of their stories. Very moving.

This was my first book by Debbie Macomber and I loved it and will be reading more. I love stories that are intertwined between the characters telling us readers a little bit of history behind each main character. All the four women were interesting as were their stories. I would totally recommend this book.

Wonderful book about women who get together to give each other support and encouragement. Each woman has her own trials, and deals with anger, hurt, abandonment and forgiveness. Every woman who reads this book can most likely identify with one or more of the characters. In the end each woman comes through their trials stronger and more caring. Is an excellent read.

I enjoyed the book. It reminds you that no matter what you are going through in life there are always others who are going through much the same or more. It is always comforting to have others to talk to when you think you have lost all hope and faith in yourself and life.

This was the sweetest novel about 4 women who get together every Thurs. and share their lives over coffee and dessert. Among the 4 are a widow, a new 40ish divorcee, and a young mother. This book has such realistic dialogue that you think you are there, ease dropping from the next table. New love, forgiveness, acceptance of oneself, and true friendship are among the subjects that are discussed between them. As their lives unfold, you will be glad you made this book one of your own.
