JOY FOR BEGINNERS by Erica Bauermeister
In stores June 9
A group of seven women gather for an outdoor candlelit dinner in Seattle to celebrate their friend Kate’s recovery from cancer. Wineglass in hand, Kate makes a pact with them: to start her new lease on life, she’ll overcome her fears and go white-water rafting down the Grand Canyon. But if she goes, each of them must also do one thing in the next year that is new or difficult or scary – and Kate gets to choose their challenges.
Knowing how much I liked The School of Essential Ingredients, June 9 can't come soon enough for this reader!
