The Elegant Gathering of White Snows


5 Stars

I loved this book! It’s the story of a group of women who meet once a week for drinks and general socializing. Each has her own terrible problems, and one meeting they all decide to go for a walk. The walk continues for days and day as each woman finally takes the time she needs to work through her personal crisis. The walking women capture the imagination of the nation and inspire others along the way. It’s heart warming and touching and every other warm, fuzzy word imaginable, and it was the perfect gift for my mom last mother’s day with a bottle of wine and a box of truffles. A sexist pig of an acquaintance of mine thought it was the most absurd thing he’d ever heard of (I quote “Well,that’s stupid. They women in that story just ran away from their problems!”), which only made the book more potent in my eyes.
