"Captures the lives of blue-collar boomers, this book is great for book clubs, and Link knows the territory."
"So pick up this book: You’ll laugh; you’ll cry; you’ll find yourself pondering the meaning of life’s small disappointments and its greatest joys, especially the “fierce friendships” at the heart of this remarkable story."
"With humor, honesty, and a deep love for each individual, Link describes the slow but steady buildup of friendship and loyalty among the members as they ate, drank, played pool at the local bars, wandered in the dead of night through the thick woods to find bears, and generally bonded in ways that many women may never experience in their lifetimes. . . .A moving, honest, and laughter-filled account of eight women who gather one weekend every year and enjoy themselves to the fullest."
