This book was enough. I normally don’t care for shorts because they are...short. But, I am a faithful Nako reader. Every book she writes gives me inspiration. It’s ironic because this year was my very first time hosting Friendsgiving. My husband and I invited our closest friends over, I cooked amazing food and we had a blast. This story inspires me to host Friendsgiving 2020 and invite only my closest good girlfriends. We never know the minute or the hour. Sharing with those you love and who lov ...more

Happy New Year and New Beginnings!

Wow as usual Nako has gave us a beginning that had me in my emotions, sniffing, tearing up and yet this short story is beautiful! Ashley has got divorced and living alone in her new home.

What happens when you have some strangers knock on your door if your new house and ask can they have their annual friendsgiving here, you say yes. Ashley had just went through a divorce and purchased a new home, but was not happy. Friends of the previous owner came by and that begin the story of the past six years of friendsgiving and made lifelong friendships. Jill was that mastermind behind friendsgiving and the story showed how they were there for Jill who battled cancer. This story was a gre ...more

This short read was powerful, encouraging, motivating, and Inspirational just to name a few. While reading, I realized that time waits for no one and that at anytime, sickness and or tragedy will occur. Friendsgiving is a great idea for anyone who’s going through trials and tribulations and need a Village of important women.
