Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons - hardcover

2003, ISBN: 9780345438829

ID: 130153085

Ballantine Books, 2003 Near-new condition. Stated First Edition. NO remainder marks or price clippings - Tight spine - Bright pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. 405 pages. - From her sensational sleeper hit Patty Jane’s House of Curl to her heartwarming novel Welcome to the Great Mysterious, Lorna Landvik has won the hearts of readers everywhere by skillfully balancing hilarity with pathos, and bittersweet insights with heartwarming truths. Now she returns to her beloved, eccentric stomping ground of small-town Minnesota where the most eclectic, and engaging group of women you’ll ever meet share love, loss, and laughter. Sometimes life is like a bad waiter—it serves you exactly what you don’t want. The women of Freesia Court have come together at life’s table, fully convinced that there is nothing good coffee, delectable desserts, and a strong shoulder can’t fix. Laughter is the glue that holds them together—the foundation of a book group they call AWEB—Angry Wives Eating Bon Bons—an unofficial “club” that becomes much more. It becomes a lifeline. The five women each have a story of their own to tell. There’s Faith, the newcomer, a lonely housewife and mother of twins, a woman who harbors a terrible secret that has condemned her to living a lie; big, beautiful Audrey, the resident sex queen who knows that good posture and an attitude can let you get away with anything; Merit, the shy, quiet doctor’s wife with the face of an angel and the private hell of an abusive husband; Kari, a thoughtful, wise woman with a wonderful laugh as “deep as Santa Claus’s with a cold” who knows the greatest gifts appear after life’s fiercest storms; and finally, Slip, activist, adventurer, social changer, a tiny, spitfire of a woman wholooks trouble straight in the eye and challenges it to arm wrestle. Holding on through forty eventful years—through the swinging Sixties, the turbulent Seventies, the anything-goes Eighties, the nothing’s-impossible Nineties—the women will take the plunge into the chaos that inevitably comes to those with the temerity to be alive and kicking. Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons depicts a special slice of American life, of stay-at-home days and new careers, children and grandchildren, bold beginnings and second chances, in which the power of forgiveness, understanding, and the perfectly timed giggle fit is the CPR that mends broken hearts and shattered dreams. Once again Lorna Landvik leaves you laughing and crying, as she reveals perhaps the greatest truth: that there is nothing like the saving grace of best friends. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Ballantine Books, 2003

The Freesia Court Book Club, renamed Angry Housewives Eating Bon-Bons after Merit's husband made an unfortunate remark about his wife's extracurricular activities, had its origins in a snowball fight on a cold winter night. Faith Owens, Audrey Forrest, Merit Iverson, Kari Nelson, and Marjorie McMahon (aka Slip) gathered in Faith's living room after that famous snowball fight to warm up and dry off before returning to their own homes, their sleeping children, and their distracted husbands. Talk turned to a book Faith had on her couch and then Merit brought up the book club her mother had belonged to years ago. It was a short conversation later that AHEB was born and the five women embarked on a lifelong journey together through books, friendship, family, tragedy, loss, birth, sickness, health and success. As the years go by, the children grow up (some forming book clubs of their own), jobs come and go, and even husbands can't always be counted on to be there, Faith, Merit, Slip, Audrey and Kari stick together, sharing their troubles and supporting each other through it all. When it becomes apparent the bruises on Merit's arms aren't from tripping and falling, the Angry Housewives take matters into their own hands and drive Merit's husband Eric out of the house. Kari's long awaited adoption of a baby brings good luck to all the Housewives, as does the birth of Merit's third daughter in the middle of a book club meeting Audrey's late-discovered calling as a counselor and minister helps Faith reconcile with her son and come to terms with past secrets that haunt her. All the women have secrets, it seems, but as they learn through the years, no secret is too large for the AngryHousewives to handle. Not poverty, not abuse, not nosy neighbors, not infidelity, not war, not infertility. Their acceptance of one another just as they are, faults and all, draws them together into a tight knit circle that is ready to drive away any demon no matter how scary. Lorna Landvik has crafted a beautiful portrait of female friendship through the years. Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons Landvik, Lorna, Ballantine Books
