it was amazing

I love this book. It is the only Helen Hooven Santmyer novel I've read and now am anxious to dive into a few more. When first read, I found the women and their relationships with each other intriguing and envious. Now, years later, having had my own book club, intact for 15 years, I'm anxious to reread this one. I was later surprised to read that the author wrote it when quite elderly, and that she was a literature professor. Based on the storyline I had assumed she was considerably younger but not surprised to learn that she taught writing. it's really well written and the characters are wonderfully and colorfully fleshed out. This is a great

summer read...not to be missed for those who read classics and non fiction but like to have some fun peppered in with the serious stuff! It doesn't hurt that it got rave reviews from the pros when it was released.
