Summary (From the publisher):

On the surface, it is a monthly book club. But for five women, it is something more precious, a chance to share their hopes and fears and triumphs.

Eve's husband's sudden death has turned her world upside down, cheating her of every security she had planned on.

Annie, a brilliant attorney at forty-three has decided to have a baby, but all the determination in the world can't change the cold reality in nature.

Doris is forced to acknowledge her dying marriage and finds the ultimate freedom in her husband's betrayal.

Gabriella is the "perfect" wife, mother and friend, who offers support to everyone but is afraid to ask for it herself.

Midge is an artist who has always lived her life against the grain; but suddenly she's feeling like a stranger to the very people who should know her best.

They are women in transition, and as they embrace the challenge of change, they will hold fast to the true magic of the book club: friendship.
