What a great story of friendship! As usual, Mary Alice Monroe has written an engaging tale with well developed unforgettable characters! A nice easy read! I hated to see it end. I felt like I had become a member of "The Book Club"!

This book is an awesome read! I read this with an online book group and we got to chat with Mary Alice Monroe about it. You will laugh, cry, and scream with the characters. It will touch your life in a way that you will continue to think about it long after you turn the last page. They will become your best friends. I highly recommend this book. I have my copy and I won't let it go.

This book is about a group of women who become great friends because of a book club that they form. It is a good story line and a quick read. And the characters are believable and lovable. I guess I just wish the author had developed them over a longer time frame. Overall, I really did enjoy the book.

What a wonderfully written novel about the closeness, support and sometimes cruelty 5 friends can share. "The Book Club" is the central thread that keeps these women connected, encouraginf them to stay open to new ideas and expereinces. Through friendships the reader has had over the years, the charaters could have portrayed real women. A compelling read.

The women in this book are strong in themselves and in their friendships. I enjoyed reading about them and how they faced the challenges before them, their own and those of their friends.

Another great book by Mary Alice Monroe. Her books always flow easily, and make you want to keep reading. This book is more about the woman in the book club, what is happening in their lives and doesn't talk much, if at all really, about the books they are reading. Would recommend reading.
