This book could have been great except it wasn't. Meet 5 women whose lives are told in short, jumpy bits, who are kind of, but not altogether that connected. The book jumps years at a time in places and falls short of developing any one of the women in the story. This was a book club selection that my group, as a whole, was very disappointed in. If it hadn't been for my commitment to the club, I would have stopped reading it after 100 pages. Read The Help by Kathryn Stockett if you really want to be blown away by the lives of some amazing women!
I enjoyed this book very much. I thought it was going to be more humorous. There are some pretty funny goings on (although sad, in a way)...after all, a nursing home is not really a comedy club. Well written...reminded me of The Help. I would recommend it.
Meet five North Carolina women who are about to change the way you think about friendships. Great book about friendships & getting older. Quick summer read.
This book was a treasure................highly recommend!
Absolutely loved it. At the age of 69 this isn't so far away for me and I found it very moving and inspirational.
Delightful! I fell in love with these characters. A must-read.
