In Fort Worth, three women meet in the ladies room of the
Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation meeting hall.
Middle aged Maggie Prescott is giving away her wedding gown
that she wore twenty-five years ago because she believes
her husband Mike no longer cares about her. Holly Weeks is
stunned because the man she loves has proposed, a request
that goes contrary to her life list and heats up her fears
following her mother's death years ago from breast cancer.
The third bathroom buddy sixty-five year old Grace Hardeman
suffers from breast cancer.
Though from three different generations, the trio becomes
friends. Grace provides a role model for her younger
buddies as her philosophy of "today is a gift that's why
it's called the present" resonates in all she does.
However, even she fears dying as it is a matter of time
before she must enter the hospital with her beloved loyal
husband and her two pals providing her support.
Readers who enjoy a wonderful relationship drama that
emphasizes the importance of loved ones during a health
crisis will want to read THE PINK MAGNOLIA CLUB and donate
to the Making Memories Foundation. The story line moves
the audience through the three women confronting varying
traumas in different ways. The characters seem genuine and
fans will hope for the best whatever that might be for each
one. Geralyn Dawson provides a powerfully emotional tale
that will bring her much praise from fans and reviewers
(and tissue companies) for this courageous tale.
Holly Weeks, whose boyfriend has lured her to the
sale under false pretenses, wants to walk barefoot on a
Tahitian beach, win Yard of the Month, and read a thousand
books for pleasure. She has many other goals on her "Life
List," but getting married isn't one of them. Never mind
that she's in love. Now if she could only figure out what's
holding her back. Maggie Prescott is lonely in her
empty nest. When her husband forgets their twenty-fifth
anniversary, she wonders whether she even wants to share a
nest with him anymore. Donating her wedding gown
seems like the right thing to do. Grace Hardeman,
who's volunteering at the sale, wishes for health
happiness, and a party with loved ones to mark fifty years
of marriage. But soon she's facing the fight of her life.
Together, these three women at turning points in their
lives learn there's nothing like friendship to strengthen a
heart that's in danger of breaking.
