All that is said as a bit of a "warning" to those who read Christian fiction and might try a Macomber book. They are really good!
When I read the synopsis of Thursdays at Eight I knew I would love it! Four ladies at different stages of their lives and going through different seasons meet at a journalling class. As friendships develop and the class ends, they decide to keep meeting once a week for breakfast and so the Thursday Breakfast Club is formed.
We, the readers, are given a "fly on the wall" view of the club and the lives of these ladies. We watch Claire deal with her husband's infidelity and divorce; we watch Liz seek to find purpose for her life; we see Karen work through her dreams and learn that what you want isn't always what you need; and we sit with Julia as she comes to term with a late in life unexpected pregnancy.
This is a book about life and about friendships... those wonderful relationships women seem to form that keep us sane!
Great read! My only regret is I can't go visit them all again and see where they are now and what they are doing!
