Meetup Description: For June's meeting we are going to read The Godmother by Carrie Adams. It comes highly recommended by Kristy and a few others who were at the May meeting. A few notes before we get to the book synopsis:

*We are meeting on a Thursday in June because it was better for a few of our regulars.

**Tracy had a good suggestion - let's have a PURSE EXCHANGE at this meeting. If you have a purse that is still in good condition that you don't want anymore, bring it along and exchange it for something a new one.

Here's a summary of the book:

There's nothing tying her down . . . but maybe that's the problem.

Back from a five-week escape from her obsessive former boss (read: job over, phone number changed, doorman notified), Tessa King returns to London rested and ready to reclaim her life. She has endless possibilities, and a full social calendar with wonderful friends and godchildren who adore her.

But as Tessa begins to look at all their lives, she questions whether having a family can actually guarantee happiness: Helen and Neil, parents to twin boys, are in a seemingly perfect marriage, though it hides dark and twisted secrets. Single mother Billy struggles to make ends meet and can't get over a man who doesn't want her. Happily married Francesca and Nick endeavor to guide their headstrong teenage son. Claudia and Al have everything they need to create the perfect loving family?except a baby. And then there's Ben: best friend, loyal confidant, willing drinking partner, and Tessa's everything?but also Sasha's husband.

Heartwarming, dark, funny, and almost too true to bear, Carrie Adams's extraordinary debut novel speaks to anyone who has wondered about the next step. It reminds us that the challenge in life is to find a direction that is truly our own, and that some fairy tales just aren't fair.
