How far would you go to help a close friend? Is there a place where you might draw the line and simply have to say no?
Eight women. Four decades of friendship. One unimaginable request.
Where can you find a story about friendship, laughter and the good things in life that also touches on alcoholism, infidelity, porn addiction, illness and grief? For many women, it’s often within their own circle of friends. Whether your BFFs are in their twenties or are seniors, everyone has a story.
The Bridge Club reminds us of the complexities of women’s friendships through an entertaining and often moving tale of eight women whose lives intersect once a month initially to play the game of bridge. What began as one night turns into four decades that span the segments of a woman’s journey from youthful optimism to embracing the challenges and opportunities presented in life’s later years.
Based loosely on the author’s own bridge club, the story weaves the reader through a maze of life’s inevitable scenarios.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
It was written in a very unique style but was pretty easy to follow the various members of the bridge club and their problems. It was a bit like going to a good therapy session!
Intricate, emotional, unforgettable saga of eight friends who’ve been meeting over the years. Unforgettable meetings which allow them (and us, the readers) to focus on the “big” moments in their lives, share their doubts and enthusiasms, help each other until the last chapter that reserves a real surprise. Don’t miss it!
This book was a wonderful surprise. From the cover I thought it was another fluffy little comedy about a group of zany ladies. Let me assure you it is not – rather it is a guide book for every woman who faces the problems of womanhood as these characters. Yes they are a bit zany, but they define what friendship is all about.
What an extraordinary book. From the first word till the last, Ms Sands carry you through the adventures of 8 fabulously wonderful women. These women have been together from the very beginning as bridge partners. They each have their own lives but once under the same roof with the cards dealt in front of them they become a group of friends so tightly entwined that they form their own world.
I found this book to be so much richer and filled with thought provoking parables that I know I shall pass it on to many people. I will keep this book on my heart for a very long time as there is so much to think about and consider within its pages.
