Dani, Meg, and Charlotte have bonded over babies, barbeques, and backyards, but when they escape for a girls weekend away, they can’t bring themselves to return to lives that don t seem to fit anymore.
Harried Dani can’t explain why she feels so discontented until she meets a young gallery owner who inspires her to rediscover the art that once made her happy.
Dependable Meg faces up to a grief that threatens to swallow her whole and confronts a marriage built on expectations.
Flamboyant Charlotte, frustrated with her stagnated life and marriage, pursues a playboy Irish singer and beachside business opportunities.
All three of these women thought they would be different. None of them thought they’d be facing down forty and still wondering when life starts. What they do when they realize where they’re headed is both inspiring and wildly entertaining.
GIRLS’ WEEKEND is a fun, yet poignant romp through the universal search of who we are, why we love, and what makes us happy by an author who is quickly emerging as one of our most incisive storytellers.
This is an intriguing story about three women, mothers, who are struggling in independent ways with aging and self-identity.
It is a heartwarming story that touches on the importance of friendship, familial relationships, marriage, child-rearing, happiness, loss, discovering what’s important in life and, ultimately, reinventing one’s self.
It is very well written. And the characters are well-developed, real, interesting and flawed.
This truly is a poised, enlightening novel that I thoroughly enjoyed.
