This whole series, of which this is the third, is just full of sweetness and light (emphasis on sweetness). Sometimes you just want a book that doesn't ask much of you, that you know when you start that everything will come out all right, and that everyone will get what they deserve or grow to deserve what they get. If that's what you're in the mood for, this series is just the ticket. But don't be surprised if the next book you read is something like...oh, Neil Gaiman's Sandman series...
This is the third book of the three senior women who live together. Their trials and tribulations of their personal ambitions and lives are interwoven. A greiving injured dauhter comes to recuperate and ends up becoming a part of their "family". You become intrigued by their wisdom and respect for one another and the people who intersect their lives

This book is sometimes described as Christian fiction, but I'm not sure that is a very good description of it at all. I liked the characters, but there were more than one plot development in this book that just bothered me. They were enough to help me decide that I'm not going to read any more in this series.

As always, I enjoy reading about the "ladies" and their lives. I am sure that I enjoy them so much since I am in their age bracket. Another joy in reading the book is seeing our area (Asheville, NC) through someone else's eyes. I hope to read all the books in the series because they are some of my friends.

This author writes a good storyline. The three main characters are older women who have come together as friends and are living their lives with gusto. I love the descriptions of the town and the gardens. All I say is that I want a 'pizza garden' as described in the book.

The Ladies of Covington is a book about friendship, restoring friendship and developing friendship. A feel good series...a rural setting...women of the 60+ age group...relationships with children, siblings, and husbands/parents... Highly recommend this book.

Very special. These ladies remind us of the endless possibilities senior years hold. Am delighted to read that Joan only began this series when she was 60. Brava!!!

This was my second read of it, charming, gentle fiction. Moved the characters along (this is the third in a series). Really enjoyed it.

I've been down with a bad cold this week. Covington is perfect...not too tricky...not too deep...about three old ladies trying to figure out these last years of their lives.
