The author divided up the chapters for each woman, which I found a good way of interacting and getting to know each woman in turn. We feel their emotions, we get to see inside, not only they're lives but their soul.
Madge, Joan, Jackie and Lou met in college. Madge kept in touch with each of them even though they went their separate ways in life. They met up occasionally.
Each one had to finish their own life story.
Madge wants to finish hers by suicide and to do this she needs help from her friends. She wants her suicide to look like an accident. You can imagine how they others react to this.
The next thing, Madge is missing. They fear for her.
They report this to the Police however, she has to be missing for at least 24 hours before they take action.
There are a whole lot of questions that need answers, as we learn that each woman is harboring a secret.
Did Madge succeed in killing herself?
Madge has a lover, and she has sons, what do the other three women tell them?
What about the investigation?
This is the first time I have read anything by this author Jo Barney, I have another book by her so will be getting on to enjoy that one too.
She seems to write very good topics in a down to earth kind of way that the reader gets involved with without you even realizing it, and the time just flies by reading.
I really enjoyed this.
When they gather this time, they’re surprised and taken off guard at what transpires. One of them has a debilitating disease that will rob her of her mind and body, and she doesn’t want to stick around for it. Instead, she writes the story of her life, and she writes the stories of her dearest friends’ lives and ask that they finish their individual stories, but she also tells them how hers will end.
This is an emotional tale that delves deep into the lives of these women, their failures and successes and everything in between. I really enjoyed it (even though it’s not my typical read) and would highly recommend it.
Although this is a fantastic novel, I did find the editing/proofreading errors a bit distracting, however once the author addresses those, it’s a 5 star novel all the way!
