Reviews: Four Friends by Robyn Carr




From #1 New York Times bestselling author  Robyn Carr comes the story of four friends determined to find their stride. Ultimately, they'll discover what it means to be a wife, mother, lover, friend…and most important: your true self.

Gerri can't decide what's more devastating: learning her rock-solid marriage has big cracks, or the anger she feels as she tries to repair them. Always the anchor for friends and her three angst-ridden teenagers, it's time to look carefully at herself. The journey is more than revealing—it's transforming.

Andy doesn't have a great track record with men, and she's come to believe that a lasting love is out of reach. When she finds herself attracted to her down-to-earth contractor—a man without any of the qualities that usually appeal to her—she questions everything she thought she wanted in life.

Sonja's lifelong pursuit of balance is shattered when her husband declares he's through with her New Age nonsense and walks out. There's no herbal tonic or cleansing ritual that can restore her serenity—or her sanity.

Miraculously, it's BJ, the reserved newcomer to Mill Valley, who steps into their circle and changes everything. The woman with dark secrets opens up to her neighbors, and together they get each other back on track, stronger as individuals and unfaltering as friends. 
This is not your typical romance from Robyn Carr. The struggles are real and heart felt. The characters are about to face the most difficult times in their lives. Through Carr's writing, we are given a front row seat.  I really enjoyed this book, started and finished this book so quickly that I didn't even have time to add it to my currently reading section before I had finished. The friendship between the women were so strong and from the second I started reading not only could I not put it down, but I started questioning things about life and friendship and that sort of stuff.
I would recommend this book to all! It has been a long time since I have read a book that made me cry, but the last chapter or two of this book I had trouble seeing the pages because of the tears welling in my eyes There is laughter and tears, ups and downs, fighting and making up. The devotion that ladies have to each other is very touching.  Four Friends is a heart warming and sometimes sad tale...a story of friendship, life transforming journeys and the four woman that face it together.
