The Young Wives Club by Julie Pennell

Why did I choose this book?

The cover is so colorful and fun! And what’s not to love about weddings?

What’s the book about?

This is the story of four young women who are newly married or considering marriage. It combines romance and drama, as each faces different relationship challenges. The stories work independently, but are also interwoven since the women are best friends.

What did I like best about the book?

I think most married women would agree that a wedding doesn’t guarantee “happy ever after”. It was easy to relate to and sympathize with all four characters in this book as they struggled with insecurities and unfortunate circumstances. Sometimes it took each character a while to realize her own worth, but I understood why they made the choices they did. Relationships are about compromise—but that doesn’t mean you should lose yourself in the process. I’m glad the girls made smart decisions in the end.   

I found the book very entertaining and I was reluctant to put the book down at bedtime when I wanted to keep reading!

Overall take-away?

The Young Wives Club is a fun, romantic read. Find out more about Julie at: http://juliepennell.blogspot.com .
