An uplifting tale, FOUR FRIENDS, the latest novel by
New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr, is a clever and deeply satisfying
read. I enjoyed getting to know these four women as they deal with life’s
difficulties, always aware that they can rely on the friends as they pull
together to help each other.
Dealing with menopause, homosexuality, teen dating,
underage drinking, infidelity, domestic abuse, depression, friendship, marriage,
secrets and love, this story is one you will not soon forget. I became a fan of
Ms. Carr’s works after reading her VIRGIN RIVER series and now I cannot get
enough. This story is just one more example of why Ms. Carr is a constant on my
‘must read’ list. Pick up a copy and discover Ms. Carr’s world for yourself!
