On page 56, the author writes, "A Meryl Streep movie was as good as chicken soup, a best friend, a therapist, and a stiff drink." It got me to thinking do I have a favorite comfort movie I turn to? Really, I can think of three or four movies I turn to and watch at least once a year. Mostly, I watch those movies in the wintertime when the snow is blowing outside, and I am curled up all cozy under my favorite blanket and just set back and enjoy my comfort movies.
As the women set around watching and discussing the different Meryl Streep movies, it made me want to watch all the movies over again. I do know this...when I watch any Meryl Streep movie again, I will view them differently, and it will bring to mind the discussions these women had as they watched the movies.
I found this book was filled with warmth, depth, and candor. Mia March skillfully opens the lives of these four different women, each coping with their own challenges and secrets. This is the first book I've read by this author, and I would be willing to read more by her.
I really liked this book and awarded it 4****
This book is a part of my Nook library.
