The Saving Graces: A Novel by Patricia Gaffney
My rating: 4 of 5 stars The Saving Graces by Patricia Gaffney takes us on a journey of friendship between 4 women who have been together so long, and are so close, they have a name for themselves. Each chapter is narrated by one of the women in turn, so we get each story from all 4 perspectives. Each woman is different with her own demons, regrets and challenges.
We follow their lives, what happens to them and the decisions they make, becoming exasperated and exhilarated by their stories. During the time the story takes place, each of the women are hit with real adversity and affliction virtually at once. We root for them, we laugh with them and we cry with them as they go through life and learn the lessons that we all must learn.
It is a book that invites readers to celebrate friendship, womanhood and life.
