The Saving Graces is a women's group that consists of 4 permanent members: Emma, Rudy, Lee, and Isabel. Together these women have been through it all - love, divorce, jobs, friends, financial issues, you name it. They have stayed the closest of friends and find it hard to believe they could survive without each other.
In the book, we witness all of the events of a few years in these women's lives. We learn about Lee's fertility issues, Rudy's marriage problems, Emma's man problems, and Isabel's failed marriage. Through it all, the women stick together. But when Isabel's breast cancer returns, the women need each other more than ever. Can they make it through this time together?
The book is narrated by all four characters.

A wonderful, wonderful, wonderful book. Everyone should have friends like the Saving Graces. This a "true" story of friendship. While reading this book, I had to remind myself that these women were just women in a book, not real. I wanted to talk to them, laugh with them, eat with them, swim with them, and cry with them. This book made me feel like I was doing it all. The writing style is unique, in that each chapter is written from the point of view of one of the members of the "Saving Graces". It is enjoyable, because you get a chance to know what they are each thinking and feeling throughout the entire book. Two thumbs up!
