Format: Kindle Edition

“I love this book’s conversational style. I felt like I went out to lunch with 162 women friends. The author, a journalist, guides the conversation and introduces each topic — from marriages to careers to life dreams. So, the book is easy to follow. I especially enjoyed reading about the women’s childhoods and the effects, positive and negative, that their parents had on their lives.”
