From number-one New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr comes the story of four friends determined to find their stride. This honest look at marriage examines the challenges, heartaches, and sacrifices along with the joy in discovering what it means to be a wife, mother, friend, lover - and most important: your true self. Gerri can't decide what's more devastating: learning her rock-solid marriage has big cracks, or the anger she feels as she tries to repair the damage. Always the anchor for friends and her three angst-ridden teenagers, it's time to look carefully at herself. The journey for Gerri and her family is more than revealing - it's transforming. Andy doesn't have a great track record with men, and she's come to believe that for her a lasting love is out of reach. When she finds herself attracted to her down-to-earth, ordinary contractor - a man without any of the qualities that usually appeal to her - she questions everything she thought she wanted in life. Sonja's lifelong pursuit of balance is shattered when her husband declares he's through with her New Age nonsense and walks out. There's no herbal tonic or cleansing ritual that can restore her serenity - or her sanity. Miraculously, it's BJ, the reserved newcomer to Mill Valley, who steps into their circle and changes everything. The woman with dark secrets opens up to her neighbors, and together they get each other back on track, stronger as individuals and unfaltering as friends.

Absolutely. The characters are very real. They are dealing with real life issues in life, love and parenting. The ladies are there for each other and support each other during difficult times and to celebrate during the successes as true friends do.this story made me think, really think about my blessings, my relationships with my family and friends. I am a better person for having listened and thought about this story. I value each relationship all the more.
BJ asserting herself with the ladies to look in on Sophie as she was spiraling downward in self destruction. She was fully aware and observant of another lady in trouble.
This is my first
No, I needed to think about each issue as it was presented.
Definitely! Excellent friends storyline! Excellent narrator!
Very difficult to say who was my favorite character; they all had their own unique qualities. As a whole they made one great family neighborhood!
This book left me wanting a sequel now!!! When I can become a part of the characters in the book I have been drawn in emotionally. I think it made me laugh not cry; heartwarming!
I began Four Friends being my first read by Robyn Carr. Wasn't long I became a fifth friend joining in the lives of four totally unique friends all with different problems in their households yet supporting one another because they were what friends "should be"!! How do they solve their family problems? There are many positives written on how they did this soaking me into their reality of life. Husbands, boyfriend, son struggling with identity-it's a book one doesn't want to put down and when the end comes I was salvation for another sequel! Easy read..need to escape the world go into Four Friends world you won't be sorry!! Please Robyn write a sequel!!
Enjoyed the four different main characters. Each one is facing their own set of problems and you will be absorbed in the journey. Lots of words of wisdom, and good insight into helping these girls deal with their personal problems. Felt like each of these girls were a case history right out of a therapist's patient files. Would continue reading about their lives if Robyn Carr does a series.
Well written, and we'll read, with good character development.
This was my first Robyn Carr novel, and I definitely enjoyed it.
Say something about yourself!
I enjoyed the story of these women and their relationships, but I really hated the narrator's multiple voices - I would have preferred different voice actors for different parts. Some of her voices were so annoying it was distracting. And the sex scenes were sooooo cheesy - could have very easily left them out and not hurt the story line one bit.
The exploration of infidelity within a strong marriage.
Ick - probably not
Anything else. The story was terrible
At least from this author
She gave a good performance of horrible material
