Publisher's Summary

Clare has just been through a devastating divorce. She's driven by anger and revenge until she learns something about her ex-husband that forces her to look deep inside for the forgiveness and compassion she's rejected - and for the person she used to be.
Elizabeth is widowed, in her late 50s, a successful professional - a woman who's determined not to waste another second of her life. And if that life should include romantic possibilities - well, why not?
Karen is in her 20s, the years for taking risks, testing your dreams. Her dream is to be an actor. So what if her parents think she should be more like her sister, the very respectable Victoria?
Julia is turning 40 this year. Her husband's career is established, her kids are finally in their teens and she's just started her own business. Everything's going according to plan - until she gets pregnant!

What the Critics Say

"Thursdays at Eight is a novel of everyday women confronted with extraordinary circumstances, and Macomber tells their stories with a depth of mature insight that is both compassionate and unfailingly honest. These are women with guts and fortitude, courage and determination, and readers will recognize the same strength of character found in the novels of venerable authors Rosamunde Pilcher and Maeve Binchy."

Loved this book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It was just a realistic and pleasant story about people who I could easily know and identify with. I'd recommend it to someone who would like that in a book.


What other book might you compare Thursdays at Eight to and why?

Can't think of any at the moment. I guess Waiting to Exhale, but with less drama and um...drama. The bond that women develop is impressive. We can tend to be competitive. I like the support the women gave to one another in both of these books.


Which character – as performed by Laural Merlington – was your favorite?

Liz was my favorite. Sudden loss of her husband. An "older" women who had been concerned about being along and STILL maintained her character and turned down requests for sex by a handsome somewhat younger doctor. Even at her most vulnerable, alone state, she stayed true to her morals and character. Gotta love a strong woman who loves herself though the worst of times with class and dignity.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. I l work from home and walk my two dogs several times a day. I listen during walks and while in my car. Can't stand commercial radio.


Any additional comments?

Just that I am about to find the next book by this author an get started right away!
