Join us in our group discussion of Five Fortunes by Beth Gutcheon
The importance of connections between women is highlighted in this story of friendship and support among a group of five women who first meet on a week-long retreat at a health spa in Arizona. As they help each other through the rigors of healthful living imposed on them by trainers and nutritionists, they develop strong mutual support on other levels as well. During the following year, these strong, independent, and ambitious women face enormous challenges that bring them even closer: private detective Carter quits smoking and takes on drug dealers in L.A.; the still vibrant Rae must face her husband's decline from Alzheimer's disease; Amy and her daughter, Jill, resolve old issues; and the recently widowed Laura declares her candidacy for the U.S. Senate. The friends discover that through finding ways to support one another, each is able to move toward healing and growth in her own life.
