Light Reads for Women
These are well written books about families, relationships, and women's lives, but they're not super h-e-a-v-y. (You won't have to up your anti-depressant in order to finish them.)
- Friday Nights by Joanna Trollope
- This one by British author Trollope begins as Eleanor, an independent retired single career woman, invites two isolated young single mothers to a Friday evening at her house out of compassion and a desire to get them talking to each other. The group expands to include the single businesswoman next door, her female business partner, who is in a troubled marriage with an artist, and the wild punked-out younger sister of one of the women; all in transition, they struggle with change and life choices.
