This book was "OK". I enjoyed getting to know the characters, which I thought were a little odd, but it sort of left me wanting to know more, as if something was missing. Not one of my most favorite reads, but it's an interesting story of old friends looking back at the past, and we see how their lives turned out after many years.
I couldn't get into this book and only made it through the first 3 chapters.
Rich and delicious....the story of four women....years ago, they were girls, not women---the last generation of American females to be called "girls"---who traveled down the Mississippi River...on a makeshift raft while they were on summer vacation...There were twelve of them on that rip; now there are these four, brought together by tragedy. One of their classmates...has died in an automobile wreck (was it really an accident?), and her husband has asked the old friends to re-create the river journey and scatter her ashes at the mouth of the Mississippi...It's a reunion of classmates with all of the in-between revealed in intimate detail, as only a skilled and classy storyteller can do it.
Chic lit through and through...old college chums of a certain age going on a reunion cruise on an old-style river boat, renewing old friendships,new adventures, walking down memory lane...it is a good one.
