I liked it for it's honesty, its female solidarity and its friendship.
Janet, Reenie, Kate and Estelle are all very different women, at different stages in their lives who are missing one vital component...sexual satisfaction. Three of them decide to attend a class on the subject at a local church hall, not quite knowing what to expect. The fourth, Janet, goes with her very proper neighbour Gwen, and they think they are there to attend a gardening class but it's not the flowers which are blooming! Gwen, horrified, walks out immediately in disgust and tries to drag Janet with her but Janet makes a stand and stays. As the four of them sit waiting for their tutor they contemplate a rather large...picture on display and start to wonder why on Earth they thought it was a good idea to attend.
I felt for Janet the most. Hers is an old story of a long marriage to a controlling husband and her need to find some self esteem again.
Margaret tackles this subject well. The story flows along and I felt empathy for the characters. I think this is a story with a bit of a message to all women - girls, don't settle for almost :)
Johnson unfolds the background information artfully, allowing the reader to discover new aspects of her four characters and keep us interested. The subject matter provides a great venue for the random funny line, but the story, although lighthearted in general, carries an important message for women everywhere. It's about love, friendship, trust, and letting go of past grievances.
A great read.
So they decide to attend a workshop, a goddess workshop and here our ladies meet for the first time. At first they do not get on but after they each share personal things in class they connect and become friends, much to each of their surprise.
Each of the characters has something to overcome in their lives before they can embrace and become in tune with their inner goddess and reinvent themselves into the women they want to be.
This is a great story that at times had me laughing out loud it really is a good comedy read. The workshop scenes are no place if you are a little prudish and are a little cheeky at times. But also there is a serious side to the book as one of the characters is dealing with a family tragedy and there are serious issues in the other women's lives too that are going on too.
I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was a good fun read and I will look forward to reading some more books by the same author.
