A heartwarming debut brimming with humor, richly drawn characters, and a tender exploration of female friendship
Bea, Kate, and Ellen have always known they can depend on each other no matter what. And it’s a good thing, too, because each is finding the latest phase in life . . . a bit challenging. Bea’s contending with a new boss, power-hungry colleagues, and a difficult teenaged son, not to mention the anxieties of returning to the dating game. Stressed-out doctor Kate is coping with an empty nest and the realization that her marriage has lost its shine. And then there’s Ellen, a widow who has fallen head over heels in love with Oliver after devoting the past ten years to her children and art gallery. But the arrival of Oliver onto the scene stirs things up for the trio, and the long-term bonds of these three friends are put to the test like never before.
A novel of love, life, and friendship, Fanny Blake’s What Women Want illuminates the challenges women face as they try to determine what they want—but instead come to appreciate what they need.
