FOUR WAYS TO BE A WOMAN

This is an uncorrected proof copy.
The story of four women, friends since childhood, whose lives have taken very different paths, each struggling to meet the challenges of turning forty and coming to terms with who they are. The solution each of them finds is uniquely their own, yet binds them closer together.
The focus of the chapters alternates between the four women, so that over the course of the book you see each women from the perspective of each of the others as well as herself, making them much more interesting characters. And although the situations and challenges they face are rather clichéd, at the same time they are believably real. The conclusion manages to just fall short of being too happily ever after - yes, they do seem to have all found happiness, but you also know that it's just "happy enough for now", which really is the best anyone can aspire to.
I can't really put my finger exactly on why I enjoyed this book so much, but I did. It just kept me turning pages, and made me feel good at the end. And that's a pretty good criteria for an enjoyable book.
It was wrapped up in lovely gold crinkly paper with a pretty bow, I couldn't resist it.
Thank you. :o)
I found the first half of the book a bit depressing, these women who wanted babies but couldn't have them, or they wanted changes in their life but didn't know what or where to begin.
It did have a happy ending for all, each getting it in a different way.
They all had a great friendship with the others, a wonderful thing.
