Don’t let that pretty down home cover fool you, this is an enjoyable, sometimes hilarious, sometimes serious novel about the endurance of women’s friendships. The Supremes were given that name by Earl (of the All-You-Can-Eat) as teenagers because they were an unlikely, but inseparable group of girls. Odette is the strong, take no prisoners, one who faces all challenges head on, including a devastating one. Clarice always follows proper protocol in the face of a lot of improper behavior. And Barbara Jean, the girl from the wrong side of the tracks who made good, is still facing demons from her past.
I loved this book and was completely engrossed in the lives of these women living in a small town in Indiana who have been gathering at Earl’s every Sunday for years with their husbands. The women are now in their mid-fifties and it seems that things start to hit overdrive. Ghosts, secrets, infidelities, illness and more show up to rock the lives of these ladies and they handle it with strength, outrage, denial and humor.
