Editorial Reviews

"Like the best of the 'girlfriend' novels-books like "Circle of Friends "[and] "Waiting to Exhale-Land Girls "draws the reader in to become a member of the group, the friend just beyond the narrator's ken." --"Susan Isaacs, The New York Times Book Review"
"A pleasant melange of wit, poignancy, and charm." --"Cleveland Plain Dealer"
"Huth shares with Rosamunde Pilcher an Maeve Binchy an appreciation of the everydayness of things, an ability to capture a time and a lifestyle with the smallest detail." --"Atlanta Journal Constitution"
