|Plot Summary of The Pink Magnolia Club|
Pocket, Aug 2002, 6.99, 384 pp.
In Fort Worth, three women meet in the ladies room of the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation meeting hall. Middle aged Maggie Prescott is giving away her wedding gown that she wore twenty-five years ago because she believes her husband Mike no longer cares about her. Holly Weeks is stunned because the man she loves has proposed, a request that goes contrary to her life list and heats up her fears following her mother's death years ago from breast cancer. The third bathroom buddy sixty-five year old Grace Hardeman suffers from breast cancer.
Though from three different generations, the trio becomes friends. Grace provides a role model for her younger buddies as her philosophy of “today is a gift that's why it's called the present” resonates in all she does. However, even she fears dying as it is a matter of time before she must enter the hospital with her beloved loyal husband and her two pals providing her support.
Readers who enjoy a wonderful relationship drama that emphasizes the importance of loved ones during a health crisis will want to read THE PINK MAGNOLIA CLUB and donate to the Making Memories Foundation. The story line moves the audience through the three women confronting varying traumas in different ways. The characters seem genuine and fans will hope for the best whatever that might be for each one. Geralyn Dawson provides a powerfully emotional tale that will bring her much praise from fans and reviewers (and tissue companies) for this courageous tale.
