From the author of the bestselling Sweeney Sisters Series comes a novel of friendship, family, and hope.
Three best friends met every Tuesday for twenty-six years. And then they stopped.
When new next-door neighbors Georgia, Midge, and Lula first assembled on Georgia’s porch in Charleston for sweet tea, they couldn’t have known their gathering was the beginning of a treasured tradition. For twenty-six years they have met on Tuesdays at four o’clock, watching the seasons change and their children grow up, supporting each other in good times and in bad. With their ambitions as different as their personalities, these best friends anticipate many more years of tea time. And then, one Tuesday, Georgia shares news that brings their long-standing social hour to an abrupt halt. And that’s only the beginning as unraveling secrets threaten to alter their friendship forever.
This book is about one of my favorite reading subjects…friends. I love the friendship that these women have and that they meet every Tuesday for so many years. They support each other, share things that they wouldn’t share with anyone else, but there are also secrets they keep. There are many emotions including happiness, sadness, shock, forgiveness, and humor.
The 3 main characters are like people you know in real life, and each are easy to like. This book is a joy to read.
This is the first book by this author that I’ve read, but I do have a few others on my Kindle. I plan to get to them soon.
Ashley Farley writes books about women for women. Her characters are mothers, daughters, sisters, and wives facing real-life issues. Her goal is to keep you turning the pages until the wee hours of the morning. If her story stays with you long after you’ve read the last word, then she’s done her job.
After her brother died in 1999 of an accidental overdose, she turned to writing as a way of releasing her pent-up emotions. She wrote SAVING BEN in honor of Neal, the boy she worshipped, the man she could not save.
Ashley is a wife and mother of two young adult children. While she’s lived in Richmond, Virginia for the past 21 years, part of her heart remains in the salty marshes of the South Carolina Lowcountry where she grew up. Through the eyes of her characters, she’s able to experience the moss-draped trees, delectable cuisine, and kind-hearted folks with lazy drawls that make the area so unique.
