About this title

Synopsis:

The women of Freesia Court are convinced that there is nothing good coffee, delectable desserts, and a strong shoulder can’t fix. Laughter is the glue that holds them together—the foundation of a book group they call AHEB (Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons), an unofficial “club” that becomes much more. It becomes a lifeline. Holding on through forty eventful years, there’s Faith, a lonely mother of twins who harbors a terrible secret that has condemned her to living a lie; big, beautiful Audrey, the resident sex queen who knows that with good posture and an attitude you can get away with anything; Merit, the shy doctor’s wife with the face of an angel and the private hell of an abusive husband; Kari, a wise woman with a wonderful laugh who knows the greatest gifts appear after life’s fiercest storms; and finally, Slip, a tiny spitfire of a woman who isn’t afraid to look trouble straight in the eye.

This stalwart group of friends depicts a special slice of American life, of stay-at-home days and new careers, of children and grandchildren, of bold beginnings and second chances, in which the power of forgiveness, understanding, and the perfectly timed giggle fit is the CPR that mends broken hearts and shattered dreams.
From the Trade Paperback edition.

Review:

"This book deserves to be read on the strength of its title alone. Spanning 40 years, from the swinging 60s up to the 90s, this is a big-hearted slice of life that's forever teetering between tears and laughter" (MAIL ON SUNDAY)

"A love for books and a zest for life bring together five women in a lively story as delectable as a five-pound box of chocolates" (ANNE LECLAIRE)

"From the title onwards, this has DIVINE SECRETS OF THE YA-YA SISTERHOOD written all over it. It works" (MIRROR)

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
