Goodreads:  Once upon a time in the little town on the Oregon coast, there were four Lindas—all in the same first-grade classroom. So they decided to go by their middle names. And form a club. And be friends forever. But that was 47 years and four lives ago. Now a class reunion has brought them all—the New York lawyer, the empty nester, the frustrated artist, and the aging starlet—together again in their old hometown, at a crossroads in their lives. They’re about to explore the invigorating reality that even the most eventful life has second acts…and there’s no statute of limitations on friendship.

Ope’s Opinion:  There are so few books written about friendships between women in their fifties, so I am really enjoying this one.  It is great to see friendships that can survive so many changes in their lives.  Each one of these main characters is in a different place with marriage, work and children, but they can relate to and support each other.  

It is great to get invested in their lives, knowing this is the first of four books to read about them.  This is a Christian fiction, but is not at all preachy or pushy.

I am ready to read the second in the series.  I want to see what the  Linda’s do now and how they develop their friendships.

Rating:  Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
