What an amazing read!! Every book club should read this book, for the book itself is wonderful but the question it poses will definitely have you wondering for days.
Put simply, this is a book about four ladies who are in an online book club. They have never met apart from with their skype book blub sessions. They decide to actually meet up and spend a month together discussing books. For this extended book club meeting, they each need to bring four copies of a book that will reveal to the other members more about themselves. The idea being that they will learn about each other through books.
These ladies are of the mature age (around 60+) and are all in turning points of their lives. So this book club, and the books they have chosen, provides them with the opportunity to learn about themselves and each other as they discuss each book and how it relates to them. Through this process they also develop strong friendships
This is an absolutely beautiful book, the characters are endearing in their complex and vulnerable states. The issues they are facing, and have faced, in their lives is very realistic and as a reader, you are bound to identify with at least one of their stories. Either through direct relation to you or someone you know and love.
This book not only tackles some life changing events, but also the smaller intricacies of getting through each day. It builds strong beautiful friendships where the characters learn to give and receive support and love.
An absolutely book that has had me wondering for days which book I would choose to provide greater insight into me. What book would you choose?
