The Widows' ClubLarge Print - 2006
A widow, Valentine Denay seems to have it all - a lovely home, adequate finances, good looks, and a terrific personality. The only thing missing in her life is her husband Carter, and she wonders how she will ever fill the aching void he left behind? Now Val and two other widows who live on Morning Glory Circle have formed a coffee klatch, and she keeps busy with volunteer projects. Her life without Carter has become tolerable ... even joyful, again. But when her old high school rival, Barbie Baxter, moves to the neighborhood, Val's world is turned upside-down. Barbie has just divorced husband #3 and is looking for his replacement - and her audacious behavior and obvious flirting are getting on Val's nerves. The Widows' Club will have you laughing out loud one minute, and grabbing for the Kleenex the next. Delight in the troupe of widowed girlfriends' antics and victories, as life takes them on one emotional roller-coaster ride after another.
Joyce Livingston, who lost her husband in 2004, shares a story of a group of women learning to navigate the ups and downs of life without their husbands in The Widows' Club.
