This was a book club read for January 2024. I finished the book in December. I really enjoyed this book and the story of the friends. ( )

A book set in the United States, featuring four women in their late sixties who have a close friendship; they bicker, and complain about each other, but meet regularly and support each other in all their difficulties.

I found the informal style a bit difficult to get into at first, but as the book progressed I found myself interested in several of the characters. There are some important issues covered, making the book quite thought-provoking, and there's an encouraging ending, if a tad too neat and tidy for realism.

I read this for our local book group, and we all liked it, some better than others. Not one I'm likely to read again, but I'm glad I read it - the book group is a great way of expanding horizons a little.

Girl friends can pull you through all of the crap in your life. When Loretha Curry's takes a downhill course, her crazy posse of old ladies lifts her to new heights and adventures. In these crazy times, this book is the perfect escape! See my full review at Booktrib.com ( )

Adult fairytale. Lots of spending money, buying "stuff". Some poignant moments, funny and sad. Some insight. Main protagonist's mother a charm. Story of lifelong girlfriends in their late 60s with all the accompanying baggage life brings along. ( )
