Fun read. Read for second time. Extremely light. Pure enjoyment (no learning here). Not deep. Wasn't really a page turner. ( )

I could not put this book down. The book covers several decades of these women's lives on Freesia Court in Minnesota. They raise their children and love or don't love their husbands and most of them hide secrets. They come together in the early 1960's as they form a book club. The character development is great, from the main characters to the smaller characters, even the children. Love, love, love this book. I really want to start my own book club! ( )

This was not the 'light' easy read that I had expected. It brought out so much melencholly in me that I found myself tearing up many times throughout the book.

I have been involved with a group of women fr the past 20 years and I can so relate to the love/hate relationships in this book. I am a 22 year cancer survivor, so I was able to relate to the cancer element in the story. This was a VERY personal story fr me.

It made me laugh often,feel the heartbreak and disappointment of relationships. I enjoyed reading this book. ( )

The first couple chapters were boring and I nearly gave up, but then it got interesting when things started happening within the families. That was good for about the first half. Then the focus changed from the women themselves to what was happening with their children. This might be fascinating to parents, but it was really boring for me. It didn't read like a novel, but more like every childless-person's nightmare: listening to a proud parent regale you with the lives of their amazing, brilliant children: What they said the other day, what they're doing in school, who their friends are, what they find funny... Torturous. The book really didn't improve from there.

I think Landvik tried to cover too much ground here and didn't end up doing any of it very well. She's a competent writer, and that in fact saves the book. But the way the story changes first person perspective with every chapter was not effective. That technique doesn't usually bother me, but it just didn't work here, perhaps because not enough time was spent with each person to really get inside them. I think the story should have been told from Faith's perspective/third person. Because much of the story are her intimate letters to her mother, this seems like it should be HER story, and yet really we know the least about Faith and her family. Who is her husband? What's his response to all that happens? Who are ANY of the husbands? Why are the children so prominent, but the husbands are generally absent? And because you are with a person for only one chapter, and then don't see them again (much) until several years later, the result is big gaps in their story. It left me wondering about their life and what happened with this or that and how they felt about something or other. For example, it never really goes in to Audrey's emotional reaction to her divorce. She seemed to take it in stride, and yet they had seemed so in love.

Which brings me to realism. The Sex Goddess never finds another partner? No, I don't think so. Becomes a pastor? Even less likely. Counselor, maybe. Beau and his partner staying together YEARS later? Doubtful. But how convenient. Faith is just a plain nutcase.

I lost the book (literally) for a while when I was only about 50 pages from the end. At first I was annoyed, but then realized I didn't care if I finished the book. I knew by that time that the story didn't have any place to go. There was no "end", because it doesn't have a plot. This novel is like watching the rough cut film from cameras that have been set up in an average person's home. There are pieces that are interesting, and then much that goes with no value added. It's hard enough to develop one character and make them grow and evolve in a novel; Landvik tried to do it with 5, and didn't make it. ( )
