"A great feel-good story."-Philadelphia Examiner
"The Wildwater Walking Club is a quick smart read that will get you thinking about walking, friendship, and making time for the things you love." -Bookreporter.com
"Readers who enjoy a celebration of friendship will want to walk the beach alongside the Wildwater trio." -Midwest Book Review
"The Wildwater Walking Club reminds us of what's important in life - the joy of friendship, the power of a brisk walk, and of course the importance of a good book. I couldn't put it down. -Anisha Lakhani
"The women of The Wildwater Walking Club are a delightful trio, full of heart and determination. As they - literally - put one foot in front of the other, the three new friends find unlikely paths that point them toward more fulfilling lives. Their journey left me genuinely inspired (and with the curious urge to go out and buy a clothesline)." -Jean Reynolds Page

The Wildwater Walking Club
By Claire Cook
In classic Claire Cook style, she has done it again. The reader can’t help but feel inspired after reading The Wildwater Walking Club. In her tell-tale style, Claire Cook has created a cast of characters that the reader will want to befriend. The theme of reinventing oneself at any age added to the importance of true friendship makes this story easy to step into and follow along the path of the characters.
Noreen “Nora” is an executive at a shoe corporation; her department specializes in branding and marketing. When the corporation is bought out by another, the incoming team vies with current employees for the positions available. Nora is seduced by a man who really wants her position and convinces her to take a buyout.
Nora suddenly has 18 months of pay with no job prospects and a ton of time on her hands. She takes a pair of the shoes she worked tirelessly to promote and puts them on. Wanting to get out to do something she starts walking and her neighbor, Tess Tabares, joins her on daily walking excursions. They share their troubles and offer solutions to each other, and then another neighbor, Rosemary "Rosie" Stockton joins in as well.
The story follows a trio of friendship that analyzes what is really important in their lives. They have an adventure across the country at a lavender festival that brings inspiration, relaxation and solutions to the problems awaiting them back home.
This is a great story of women uplifting each other amidst troubles that can make any disposition sour. After reading it, any woman would want to start a walking club to share in the joy that Nora achieves through her walking group.
At the end of the novel, Claire Cook has placed a Walking Group Guide to inspire others to “start a walking revolution-one step at a time!”
She also lists a Book Club Questions guide to spark the discussion of this wonderful story.

While Claire has once again brought together a read of wonderful women friendships, she also sneaks in a message about self-worth - and not finding your worth through a job, or through someone else s eyes - but through creating you... to be who you know you can be.
Laugh if you will," Brick said. "But your ability to tell the world who you are is the first step in figuring out what you want your life to be."
page 64 The Wildwater Walking Club
And while the message at the time I read it didn't stick and hold, it did later as I read on and watched how Noreen, as well as her friends grew through the strength of each other.
Another enjoyable read by Claire Cook. My second of hers this summer and there is another one sitting in the Library Sale box that I may just have to pull out yet.
