This week on A Cup of Coffee and a Good Book

This week on the A Cup of Coffee and a Good Book BlogTalkRadio show, I will interview Judith Marshall, author of Husbands May Come and Go, but Friends are Forever. Tune in on Wednesday, July 13th, at 3:30 Pacific Time at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/jennifer-walker/2011/07/13/a-cup-of-coffee-and-a-good-book. The show will be archived for later listening.

Set in a small town in Northern California, in the spring of 2000 when the dot-com boom was at its peak, the story centers around Elizabeth Reilly-Hayden, a successful executive in her late fifties and a divorced mother of two. Emotionally armored and living alone, she wants only to maintain the status quo: her long-term significant other, her job and her trusted friends— five feisty women who first met in high school. Yet in a matter of days, the three anchors that have kept her moored are ripped away. The group of lifelong pals gathers at Lake Tahoe to attend to the funeral arrangements of their beloved friend, and tries to unravel the mystery of her death. Through their shared tragedy, Liz learns how disappointment and grief can bloom into healing and hope.

  1. I have met Judith on various threads, and I must say the title of her novel does stick in one's mind. I hope the audio interview goes well - if it's anything like her posts, it should be very interesting.
