Four Friends
Four Friends - Robyn Carr Gerri, Andy, Sonya and BJ are all in crisis. Some are more aware of it than others, at first. But being good women, they do what good women do. They help each other, they support each other in any way they can. For some it's life threatening and for some it's heartbreaking. The four women work together to get each other through these crises. It's the best of what women do best. The relationships that they come out of the crises with are better and stronger than anything they've had before. Face it, it's a Robyn Carr book, you have to feel good about everything in the end. And in this one, you certainly do! This is certainly a book for my "READ AGAIN" list.

Four Friends By Robyn Carr $1.99
Four Friends - Robyn Carr

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.

Four Friends by Robyn Carr
This is the story of 4 friends who live near one another and have for years as their lives have progressed through various stages of love and relationships.
The past events have come to light for some that lead them to upheaval.
Like especially the friendship of the woman who run every day, their lives as they do all they can for their families. Teens dealing with drugs, drinking and their parents breakups along with date rape that brings the parents together to deal with it.
Follows the spouses side to the stories as well as you get a well rounded opinion and can select a side to stick with.
Liked the confrontations and how they were handled.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).

Book Description....

"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 the damage. Always the anchor for friends and her three angst-ridden teenagers, it's time to look carefully at herself. The journey for Gerri and her family is more than revealing—it's transforming.

Andy doesn't have a great track record with men, and she's come to believe that for her a lasting love is out of reach. When she finds herself attracted to her down-to-earth, ordinary 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.

What I liked about this novel....

This was a beautiful, well absorbing amazing story of four women Gerri, Andy, Sonja and BJ who were all rather a complex bunch as it is discovered that it looks like the whole neighborhood was falling about. You will find one of the ladies are just too perfect( a control freak)...definitely one that made me laugh out loud, another one(new to the neighborhood) who has some dark secrets that has her just wanting to keep to herself, another friend who was working on her second divorce, however, was she the one that goes after and get what she wants in the end?... and then last one seems to be the friend that had it all but did she really? What will happen after she finds out that her husband had had an affair some years ago? So, her marriage isn't as solid as she thought. This was one captivating read about a friendship and with a little of it all showing 'support, tough love, humor, sarcasm' and in the end you get a wonderful well written story. Didn't these women have the perfect lives? What will happen after they discover that some of them didn't have the perfect life after all? Counseling? Now, I will not talk to much about these ladies men other than say they were all some interesting men ...Phil, George, and Bob. You will just have to read "Four Friends' for yourself to see what all is up with them!

This author really gives the reader a story with of these four women's subplots that do combine so smoothly that will give the reader a great description of each of these ladies struggles and realness of the friendships. It's a beautiful read as you will see each of the ladies under go such a life changing experience from 'mental, physical, spiritual awakening where in the end will become even more stronger than they were in the beginning...with issues such as 'menopause, abuse, depression, infidelity, divorce, unfaithful spouses, out of control children, abuse, heartless exes, keeping secrets to new friendships. In the end will these women get the importance of family, companionship and friendships. I will only say to get it all you must pick 'Four Friends' this author.

This is definitely one of those reads that if you are reading or listening to it will keep your attention and you will find it hard to put down until the end. It was quite a interesting read where you see these four strong women find their way from a dark time in their lives. Would I recommend? Yes!

Four Friends Book Review
Four Friends - Robyn Carr

This is my first Robyn Carr book and its very different from what I normally read. I have a few of her other books that I will probably try but this one just didn't do it for me. I partly think its because I couldn't relate to anything in the characters. Anyone who's in their thirty's or forty's, has experienced marriage, even divorce or any type of marriage difficulty will most likely find this read enjoyable.

 

Four Friends find themselves in different marriage issues, one getting a divorce, one husband cheats, one just wakes up and decides to leave. These four friends bond together and share their troubles and try to help one another while saving their marriages at the same time.

 

This book mainly focused on each family in different POV'S. Each friend talks about what is going on in their marriage and their family and how they are dealing with that situation. I wanted more bonding between the friends, more girls nights, etc. It needed more of what the title and description was trying to sell.

 

Even the ending left a little disappointing, nothing seemed solved and nothing seemed to have happened throughout most of the book. Something that someone who has experienced these situations and is married may enjoy. Carr is a very popular author that will always be read by general romance and contemporary authors.
