Review Text

'We're all productive, tolerably sane, functioning adults, with no more emotional baggage than you would expect in a random sample of aging yuppie women. And yet our childhoods were disasters...' Perhaps that was what drew together Emma, Rudy, Lee and Isabel - The Saving Graces - who live in a fashionable part of Washington DC. Each still has problems - Isabel is two years into remission from breast cancer, a fact which dominates their shared friendship; but the strength of that friendship gives them the support they need. Told in four voices, which reveal the women as they see themselves and each other, this is a novel that demonstrates, with affection but without bathos, the importance of same-sex relationships.
