Saturday Night Widows
Book #63 Read in 2013
Saturday Night Widows by Becky Aikman
This is a memoir of six widows and how they move through their grief to get on with their lives. They form their own support group and bring their very different stories of loss to the circle of support. Each month they get together to do an event--a trip, a day at the spa, a visit to the museum etc. These trips show their progression and healing and offer them a safe spot to voice their worries and asks their questions about life after loss.
Saturday Night Widows reads like fiction. The writing style flows well and is extremely readable. The widows are people who are down to earth and ones that readers will care about and connect with. I enjoyed this book a lot.
