Uh oh. I expressed interest in one book of two but I think I got the other! I might end up reading it anyways.

Journal Entry 4 by Crataegus at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Tuesday, December 10, 2013
An interesting feel-good read about a group of eight women who drop everything in their life suddenly and do what all women in one way or another want to do - leave on an unexpected and unknown adventure. They take off that night and start walking north - Nowhere in particular. They discover the strength of their friendships and love for one another and manage to heal themselves from wounds they've gathered over their lifetimes and inadvertently inspiring those that cross their path.

I liked the stories of the individual women. These I could read with a sense of empathy. When the men and the news articles and the outside women started, these I found rather forced. I kinda wish the author just stick to the main eight women. But still an interesting fluffy read.

Will be brought to the next Calgary book crossing meetup and handed off to anyone that's interested in it.

Picked this up at the December bookcrossing meeting

Journal Entry 6 by MoomaOma at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Monday, August 04, 2014
An interesting read but I found that is dragged on a bit and somewhat far fetched. I enjoyed the stories about the individual women of the group and how they supported one another. And as the book states numerous times who doesn't just want to chuck it all and leave at one point or another in their life. But how they affected the greater community seemed a little too unrealistic for me.

I totally concur with both Crataegus and MoomaOma. The first part of the book was great and some of the stories compelling.

But, with the introduction of all the peripheral characters I found myself skimming paragraphs. A new character would be introduced and then dropped. I was, however, moved by one of the final stories with the psycologist and the sheltered nun.

Lots of food for thought.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Taken to the September meeting: Not my Cup of Tea. I'm not sure if it was the bight pink cover that turned me off, but it was one that I decided to give 50 pages to. And it was another that surprised me this month and I really enjoyed!

To the finder:
Calgary has an active group of BookCrossers that meet to swap books and discuss book crossing every second Saturday of the month at 11am at Cravings Market on Fairmount Drive SE. We always love to meet new crossers, so please join us any time you like!

What a great book. even though you hear sad stories that the women have had in their life - this is the story of reaching beyond that and healing. Thanks for the great read.

Safely in my hands

Journal Entry 17 by wingcrossingguardmawing at Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, October 06, 2018
I just couldn’t get into this book, so after 86 pages, I did something I have never done before...I read the ending. As I had read enough to get the gist of the book, the epilogue made a tidy summary for me, leaving me feeling comfortable enough to give the book up!
