Goodreads:  In this second installment of Melody Carlsons engaging Four Lindas series, four fifty?something women discover you really can go home again . . . but its not always easy! After decades out of touch, four fifty?something childhood friends have returned to the little coastal town of Clifden, Oregon, where they grew up. They look forward to supporting one another as they reinvent their lives. But second acts can be a challenge, and each woman feels the stretch. Widowed lawyer Janie struggles to leave the past behind. Emerging artist Marley wrestles with painters block. Empty?nester Abby fears no one takes her seriously, while beautiful Caroline has all she can do to keep her Alzheimerspatient mother at home . . . and wearing clothes! Plus, old resentments and new misunderstandings are beginning to strain the friendships they all count on. Can the Four Lindas sisterhood continue to thrive in the close quarters of one little hometown?

Ope’s Opinion:  This is the second book in The Four Linda’s series.  It is even better then the first one.  It carried the reader along in all four of their lives.  I really like how the friendship from when they were young has developed and continued into their adult lives.  They  take care of  each other.  It is really nice to read about women who are supportive of each other – not catty or back stabbing.  I would wish everyone friends like them.

Someone said these books had a christian tone.  I like it said that way.  It is not preachy, but you know God is a part of their lives.

I am looking forward to reading the third one.

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