Amazon Editorial Review

Much-heralded and long awaited, Terry McMillan's tour-de-force novel introduces the Price family-matriarch Viola, her sometimes-husband Cecil, and their four adult kids, each of whom sees life-and one another-through thick and thin, and entirely on their own terms. With her hallmark exuberance and cast of characters so sassy, resilient, and full of life that they breathe, dream, and shout right off the page, the author of the phenomenal best-sellers Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back has given us a novel that takes us ever-further into the hearts, minds, and souls of America-and gives us six more friends we never want to leave.

Journal Entry 3 by wingGoryDetailswing at Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Friday, October 26, 2018
The Big Box O' Books arrived safely today - many thanks! I'll try to find lots of different places to release these, so that your books might report back from several different towns and states.

This book inspired a 2014 TV movie.

The cover-blurb says it's a "moving tapestry of familial love and redemption," and (judging by a few skimmed paragraphs) the writing style is lively and crisp, but I wasn't sufficiently intrigued to want to read it; will pass it along and hope it finds the right reader! (This hardcover has some underlining in the later chapters - not sure what was going on; maybe someone was planning a dramatic reading? It shouldn't detract from the reading experience, though.)
