Very good book, certainly a must read for every woman. Heartfelt and touching with quite a few moments of laughter to balance out all the emotions. I would highly recommend reading it.

This is a novel of compassion, humour, tenderness, honesty, living and dying, but most of all, of friends. You will want to be part of this group forever.

A touching, heart searching, self questioning/reflective read. As always with Elizabeth Berg I found it difficult to put to the book down or even in this case stop thinking about the characters. A wonderful insight into palliative care and grieving.
