    This is an engrossing read about the four women - Marie, Theresa, Elaine and Leanne who have on the surface nothing in common yet each are lonely in their own way until they gradually bond over early morning swims in the sea. There’s some humorous and uplifting moments in this as well as some soul searching ones too and the way the women met and got to slowly become friends was thoughtfully written. Their contrasting personalities were well balanced however I did feel there was an unbalanced representation of the males featured in this, there were some positive ones however a few felt a bit stereotypical 80s Aussie bloke however to be fair attitudes have altered a lot regarding women’s roles so the old fashioned views are more noticeable. Overall though this was a strong representation of women as wives, mothers, daughters and above all friends.

    A Warm, Wonderful Read!

    Having read and enjoyed The Inaugural Meeting of the Fairvale Ladies Book Club, I jumped at the opportunity to read and review this novel by the same author. Focusing on four women with swimming in common, we find ourselves a part of all their lives. As they grow closer, their problems and successes are shared. They each need the others for varying reasons and become closer and begin to rely upon each other. As with the previous book, this is a story to be savoured and enjoyed. Each of these women have very different lives but they all need a friend or two and the importance of good friends shines throughout. This is a book which will make you smile, and laugh - and even feel a tear or two slide down your cheek. The author has created several rounded characters and woven each of their tales in with the others into a warm, wonderful read, and one I really enjoyed. I'm very happy to give this four stars.
