    Savannah has awakened to the fact that she's made too many concessions in her marriage. Bernadine has watched her megadivorce settlement dwindle. Robin has an all-American case of shopaholism. Gloria has taken happiness and security for granted. But being at the wrong place at the wrong time can change everything. All four are learning to heal past hurts and to reclaim their joy and their dreams; but they return to us full of spirit, sass, and faith in one another.

    Overall

    I haven't finished the audiobook but it didn't take 5 minutes to realize that Terry McMillan's narration is the death of this work as an audiobook. I'm haven't finished the book so I can't speak to the book itself. However, if you are an avid audiobook listener, you will be disappointed by McMillan's reading. She simply reads the book with none of the voice acting audible fans are used to. For example, it's hard to tell which character is speaking since every one sounds the same. On top of it all, she doesn't have a nice voice to listen to. Take my word for it. This one is probably better for reading (with your eyes instead of your ears). If I could return it I would. I really should have listened to the sample or read the reviews.
