know the support system, the laughs, the tears. Rosemary O'Brien's "First
Saturday" is a celebration of those adult female relationships. O'Brien's writing
style flows easily off the page, bringing you instantly into these women's lives
and homes--you feel as if you are sitting there at the table with them, sipping
coffee and listening. Their stories are the stories of women everywhere--real
and raw. This book reminds us that life may not be easy, and it may not be
made easier by friends, but that you can count on your friend being there and
holding your hand throughout. When you close the last page of this book, you
feel as if you have made four new friends, and you know that through the bonds
among women, there will be a hand held out for you when you need it.
She tells a story that keep both men and women involved.
It is fast paced and a "real pleasure" to read.
In these times where the language seems to be faultering
Ms. O'Briens' prose is a grand homage to great writing.
When you read this book you step into a world where friendship,
survival, and hope are valued.
Take the time and meet this new writer.
I am sure that after reading this you will put her on your list
of authors to look for.
