really liked it
Read in January, 2010

I received this book from a wonderful friend for Christmas, and read it today - the perfect "I'm sick and feel yukky so need a brain candy" book!
Seeming like a Mitford book with an apparent light theme, the book actually went into some heavier areas. It touched on the themes of homosexuality, alzheimers, interracial marriages and of course, friendship and all that it entails and means. A group of older women begin their relationship acrimoneously, yet through an autumn filled with major events in their lives they draw together to form a group of Friends (with a capital 'F') that understand being a friend is sometimes messy, sometimes sad, sometimes hard, yet in the end always worth it.
