Wow what a book!--Covered a lot and ran the gammut from a come from nothing-secret past(sable)
Dead friend with a secret affair(Gabby) Elly(Hard exterior--with soft centre)Naive Beth with an abusive spouse and how she escapes. Barbara --Willing to leave her slobby family of men to get the message across about their habits. All four women come together to write the story of Gabby's life in a fictional form to further understand her and pay homage to the mentor they loved--As are most Robyn Carr works, this was hard to put down--I felt pulled in by the characters and their stories.
