When 4 very different women sign up for a workshop at the village hall promising women a 'garden of earthly delights,' not all of them know what they've signed up for.

Their mysterious and

This is a story about four women, Janet, Estelle, Kate and Reenie, each from different backgrounds and are complete different personalities and with nothing in common apart from just one little thing. None of them have ever experienced an orgasm.

So they decide to attend a workshop, a goddess workshop and here our ladies meet for the first time. At first they do not get on but after they each share personal things in class they connect and become friends, much to each of their surprise.

Each of th

I think Margaret's book, 'The Goddess Workshop', tackles a problem which some women tend to avoid talking about and she does it in a fun way, bringing together four women who probably wouldn't have met otherwise, in a story where they each re-evaluate who they are and how much they value themselves.

I liked it for it's honesty, its female solidarity and its friendship.

Janet, Reenie, Kate and Estelle are all very different women, at different stages in their lives who are missing one vital compone

I didn't quite know what to expect when I started reading The Goddess Workshop. The opening paragraphs were not what I expected at all until it all became clear that this was a deliberate ruse to surprise me when I realised the true subject of the story. In fact, I thought it was all about women learning to experience an orgasm for the first time; but what came across loud and clear was that this wasn't just a novel about those less than intimate moments between two consenting adults; instead it ...more

Signing up for a course at the local Church hall meant different things to one set of ladies."A Woman's harvest of delight" meant offering advice for Gwen's primulas. Kate was there because of a dare, Estelle was attending to discover her own problems, Reenie's husband had suggested the course and Janet had been pushed in to the course by Gwen's dominance. When Gwen discovered that it was in fact "An orgasm workshop" she left in disgust, but the others remained to embark on a wild journey not ...more

I loved getting to know Johnson's four flawed but ultimately lovable characters, whose differences would have prevented them from ever becoming friends if they hadn't met in such an unusual setting as The Goddess Workshop. The subject matter provides a great venue for the random funny line, but the story, although lighthearted in general, carries an important message for women everywhere. It's about love, friendship, trust, and letting go of past grievances
