This book was so beautifully and heart wrenchingly written... I loved this book so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!My tears flowed and I was left feeling as if I had lost Sally's friendship too.All the women in this book were so down to earth and I could easily identify with them and their situations. Thank you for writing such a treasure Cathy Kelly!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Not one of Kelly's best. I was very disappointed. I loved all the others, but this was so boring.

Abby Barton has become a famous TV personality with the success of her show ¿Declutter: Your Home and Your Life¿. However, she feels pressure on all sides from her producer to her spouse, but mostly her reticent teenage daughter Jess.--- Medical receptionist Lizzie Shanahan nurtures everyone but herself. However, in spite of caring for patients, her adult children and even her former husband Myles, Lizzie feels alone; her despondency is augmented by Myles finding a new love in his life.--- After a decade in the States, Erin Kennedy and her spouse Greg return to Ireland where he begins a new job in Cork. However, she worries about returning to Ireland after fleeing from her family years ago to live in Boston, and Chicago.--- Sally Richardson is contented with raising her children with a loving spouse, but her happiness is tempered by cancer. When she dies, her three friends, who believed they had the weight of the world on their back, learn what life is all about.--- The four subplots are handled with dexterity so though rotated in no obvious order; readers with a degree of difficulty will be able keep track of how each of the key females feels. Readers will care about these women and hope for the best for each of them. The character driven subplots are complex and interesting as the surviving trio begins to appreciate what they already have. Cathy Kelly furbishes a fine tale with the moral of live life to the fullest with loved ones for one day you will be an angel sitting on a cloud looking down hopefully with joy towards those you cherish.--- Harriet Klausner
