Introduction

For Katherine Givens and the four women about to become her best friends, the adventure begins with a UPS package. Inside is a pair of red sneakers filled with ashes and a note that will forever change their lives. Katherine’s oldest and dearest friend, the irrepressible Annie Freeman, left one final request–a traveling funeral–and she wants the most important women in her life as “pallbearers.”

From Sonoma to Manhattan, Katherine, Laura, Rebecca, Jill, and Marie will carry Annie’s ashes to the special places in her life. At every stop there’s a surprise encounter and a small miracle waiting, and as they whoop it up across the country, attracting interest wherever they go, they share their deepest secrets–tales of broken hearts and second chances, missed opportunities and new beginnings. And as they grieve over what they’ve lost, they discover how much is still possible if only they can unravel the secret Annie left them....

Repetitive and not terribly well written. Plot was pat, forcing the power of female frienships down the reader's throat. Characters not well-developed; male characters (few and far between) incidental... (read more)

  "I won't be passing this one on..."by nancylj (see profile) 08/27/10

There are some heartwarming moments in this book, however, I could not engage with the characters and came away feeling like I hadn't learned anything new. I would have tossed the book half way through... (read more)

 
  "Really??"by earp30wyatt (see profile) 02/27/10

Some of our bookclub members thought this was a "drippy" poor excuse of a book. Others that disagreed, disagreed in the most "aggressive" ways. Interesting reaction..... considering how poor this book... (read more)
