Talk about Thursdays at Eight

Four very different women meet at a journaling class and form a strong bond. Though I was a little perplexed as to why such different women did decide to form a breakfast club, there is no doubt that they cared for one another and were there for each other in good times and in bad.
Claire is a woman whose husband Michael has left her for a much younger manicurist. Bitterness and anger have taken over her life, but a life-altering event leads her and her two teenage sons to re-evaluate their situation.
Liz is a smart and savvy hospital administrator. Can a mature and educated widow find lasting happiness with a womanizing doctor whose top priority is bedding her?
Karen is the youngest member of the group and is constantly at odds with her family. She yearns to be an actress, preferably star in her own sitcom. Her family thinks she needs to be realistic and become a teacher.
Julia is the happily married mother of two children who has just begun her own business. She seems to have it all when a surprise pregnancy disrupts the life she has planned for herself.
This book looks at one year in the life of these friends as they cope with joys and sorrows, romantic possibilites and career challenges. Through it all, they faithfully meet each Thursday morning for breakfast and give unwavering support and encouragement to each other.
Readers will no doubt long to join Claire, Liz, Karen, and Julia each week at Mocha Moments and take part in this warm and sincere support group.
Thursdays at Eight is an enchanting story about four very different women who have reached a critical point in their lives, a point where decisions made or not made will result in life altering changes with no return trip.
At first I thought this would be a nice warm, fuzzy read but after finishing the story I realized it is really a story about all people, that we all face stunning challenges at different points in our lives. This tale portrays the importance of friendship and family and the ability to discern what is truly important and what is merely desire. I enjoyed this book far more than I thought I would, and after finishing it and thinking about it, I felt that it nudges you to examine your own life and the choices we all make.
The four women range in age from their twenties to early fifties. Their marital status, married, divorced, single and widowed, some have children, some do not. The amazing thing is that they could almost be combined into an "every-woman" and this is what draws the reader into their lives and their decisions that they reach as they meet for breakfast each Thursday morning to discuss their week.
This book follows four new friends through one year, with each chapter starting with an entry into one of their journals. Over the year, they each experience many life-changing events, as they gain insight, compassion, and hope. Although the storyline was predictable, this book was a pleasure to read. I liked the characters, the mix of ages involved. I would recommend it to anyone who wanted a pleasant, easy read.
I have read many of Debbie Macomber's books. I really like the Christmas books as they are fun reads. I actually bought this book "Thursdays at Eight" for my mom as she had just read one of the Christmas books and thought it was a hoot! My mom read 3 pages and said she would not read any more of it. She thought the content was crude and I had to agree in that I'm not all that fond of people talking about getting "scr--ed." I think that better and less vulgar language can be used. I had to take my gift back and I decided it was not something that I really wanted to read myself, so I shipped it back to Amazon. The company is great about returns by the way! Right after this I purchased another of Debbie's books called "Susannah's Garden." I found it a good read. A few words, some adult content, but nother I would call vulgar. It just goes to show you can't judge a book by its cover and one book cannot be judged by all the other marvelous ones that Ms. Macomber has written. I will still be a reader of hers.
Very Happy Customer.
I'm a HUGE Debbie Macomber fan as I too am from a town in N.W. very near where she writes about. I have been reading her books for years and years. Have read everyone of them. They are all great. The characters are delightful and I've even pondered on some of the plots.
I enjoyed this book from the first page. The four women featured, all so different, were equally likable, but I confess my favorite story line was Claire's, with Karen a close runner-up. The book is beautifully crafted, the prose deceptively simple yet enormously effective, and most importantly, Macomber engages our emotions. We laugh, we cry, we agonize, and in the end we celebrate each victory as if it were our own. Bravo! This was a terrific hardcover debut.
I thought characters came to life and book came to its logical conclusion.
