This book chronicling the various circumstances faced by eight resilient women is a must read. Becca and her three closest buds since childhood are joined by four others who together have coalesced into the community we all need in our lives. They get together for a weekly Bunko night just the girls. These â€œpartiesâ€ end up being much more than just social time though. These women bond, cry together, laugh together and share their life milestones with one another be it a new child, an illness, marital problems â€“ you name it.
While there are many serious issues and life lessons in this book it is still approached from the context of a supportive group of girlfriends with a shared faith. These ladies not only are one anotherâ€™s shoulder to cry on or listening ear they also manage to have a ton of fun even when everything seems to be crumbling around someone. Friends that can put your situation in perspective are some of the best friends a gal can have especially if your emotions have a mind of their own. Becca, Autumn, Jessica, Kathleen, Karen, Madison, Michelle and Mercedes do a wonderful job of that for each other. I hope Ms. Baker is planning more books about this engaging, authentic group of 20 and 30 something ladies who have bonded over a simple game of dice.
