This story is told from the first-person perspective of our main character, Evelyn. What I enjoyed most about this book was the fact that the seriousness of the issues were mixed with plenty of moments of joy and there were scatterings of humour throughout. The three main characters are all women of a certain age (70+) but despite that, or maybe because of it, they all want change in their lives.

I loved learning about their innermost secrets and desires. It was so entertaining to read about them growing as individuals and as friends. I was so pleased that these women found their strength in and from each other while learning a few things about themselves and some lessons along the way. This was a very moving and poignant story of grief, friendship, marriage, and moving forward.

The book surprised me in that it wasn’t the fluffy read I was expecting, but it did get very uplifting as I read on and I loved the fact that it showed you are never too old to start over or make new friends. What a wonderful debut and I look forward to Kate Galley’s sophomore release next year, The Golden Girls Road Trip.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
