From the back of the book
A glass of wine, a gossip and a good book: the reading group is born. Its members are as different as the books they read, but each woman has secret hopes and fears--for a new lover, a straying husband, an ailing mother, a tearaway teenager--and each woman finds laughter and support in the group's monthly meetings.
