Three ladies are friends due to their children or spouses and live in the same town. Each thinks that the others have the perfect husband and perfect life. However, this is far from the case. Each lady has issues or dreams that never materialized. These forty’ish women decide to go for a girls only weekend. There is a chapter devoted to each woman on her struggles. One begins to understand why the ladies want to start over and what their life would be like.
The ladies were open and honest with each other and became closer friends because of the week-end. What I really enjoyed about this book was the character building of each lady, and I could actually relate to some of their issues. A very close friend of mine and I take two week-ends a year and have quality girl time. Although we don’t sit around and discuss these types of issues, we do discuss what is going on in our lives. We both come back refreshed and energized. We also craft all week-end, which is something these ladies could do to de-stress!
When the ladies do return home on Sunday, I had a feeling that they would have a difficult time. However, this is further from the truth. The week-end helped them to focus and find peace. I’m a true believer of the girls week-end, and I am so glad that I found this book.
Thanks to Tantor Media for giving me this book in exchange for a honest review. I will definitely be on the lookout for more books from this author as well as the narrator.
