Motherhood is not for the faint of heart. And no one knows that better than Daisy. Raising two kids as a divorced, single mom, Daisy has faced each and every one of the obstacles in her life with courage and determination.
Now with her oldest daughter ready to have a baby of her own, her youngest daughter ready to graduate from high school, and her new husband, Paul, ready to embrace the life of an empty-nester, Daisy feels like she might finally be able to check “motherhood” off her list of things to do.
Except life often has a mind of its own. When, at the age of forty-six, Daisy suddenly finds herself facing a very different future than the one she had planned—and an uncomfortable evaluation of the past she thought she understood—she realizes that there is still some growing up she needs to do.
Looking for a distraction to escape the growing tension at home, Daisy joins the Newport Ladies Book Club, where she meets Paige, Athena, and Olivia—unlikely friends who offer encouragement and support when Daisy’s perfectly crafted life is turned upside-down.
I am a huge Sadie fan and already believe Josi to be a great writer. But she really topped it in Daisy. I cried—more than once. Very good book, recommended to anyone who likes women’s fiction. 5 stars and a Whitney nomination from me.
I’m enjoying this series. I am a little biased to the authors because I think every single one of those ladies are talented writers. Daisy is another viewpoint of the Newport Ladies Book Club. I enjoy the interaction and internalization of the characters. Can’t wait to read more!
I really like how “true-to-life” this series is…battling real-life situations and helping each other through them…very inspiring!
