Summary: It is Eleanor who starts the Friday night get-togethers. From her window she sees two young women, with small children, separate, struggling, and plainly lonely -- and decides to ask them in. What began as a lark soon becomes a ritual, and the circle widens to include six very different women. All of them, variously, value Friday nights. Until one of them meets a man -- an enigmatic, significant man -- and the whole dynamic changes. The bonds that have been so closely forged are tested -- and some of them break. --from Amazon.com.
