Now in mass market, the #1 Book Sense pick by Cassandra King, about a group of women who hold reunions every year since college, and the impact they have on one another's lives.
None of the Same Sweet Girls are really girls any more, and none of them are actually sweet. But this group of Southern women who have been holding biannual reunions ever since college are nothing if not fascinating. There's Julia, now first lady of Alabama; Lanier, whose husband divorced her when he found out about her affair; Astor, a former Broadway dancer whose married to one of the foremost folk artists in the country doesn't keep her flirtations in check; and Corinne, a gourd artist who is still recovering from an emotionally abusive husband. The lives of these fascinating Southern women make for a compelling, emotionally involving read.
"Just try and resist the allure of The Same Sweet Girls. . . . These women will capture you with the powerful, indelible bond that lies between them."
—Sue Monk Kidd
PRAISE FOR CASSANDRA KING
"If anybody has written a better book about the power of women's friendships, I haven't read it. Cassandra King has caught the timbre and import of women's voices as they speak to and of each other so perfectly that her jersey should be retired. The Same Sweet Girls is tender, funny, heartbreaking, and astoundingly unsentimental. Over all their lives together, these women have felt everything for each other but regret. I really, truly love this book."
—Anne Rivers Siddons
