ANGRY HOUSEWIVES EATING BOB BONS by Lorna Landvik, 2003. This book has a whole cast of main characters, 5 of them to be exact, who join a Book Reader’s Club in a small Minnesota town way back in 1968. There’s FAITH, a lonely mother of twins who harbors a terrible secret that has condemned her to living a lie. Then voluptuous AUDREY who seems to be thinking about sex all the time. MERIT has a husband who beats her, how long will she let him get away with that I wonder? KARI is the wise older woman who knows that the sunshine always comes after life’s storms. SLIP is a tiny little woman with a big temper and she’s not afraid to look trouble right in the eye. They all sound interesting, and I’m sure to enjoy this book.
NOTE: This was a very good book! Most of the chapter titles were the books the club was reading. I admit I read only ONE of those books! It was called KRISTIN LAVRANSDATTER. It was actually one of three in a boxed set. I would love to read it again. About a woman in medieval Norway. I read it as a teenager, but not the sequels where she joins a convent as an older woman. I’d like to read all three now that I’m older.
