Description

A heartwarming debut brimming with humor, richly drawn characters, and a tender exploration of female friendship.

Bea, Kate, and Ellen have always known that they can depend on each other no matter what. And it's a good thing, too, because each is finding the latest phase in life . . . challenging. Bea's contending with a new boss, power-hungry colleagues, and a difficult teenage son, not to mention the anxieties of returning to the dating game. Stressed-out doctor Kate is coping with an empty nest and the growing realization that her marriage has lost its shine. But when Ellen, a widow who has devoted herself to her children and her art gallery for the last ten years, falls head over heels in love with Oliver, the long-term bonds of these three friends is put to the test. Bea and Kate are driven away from their friend and from each other as they react differently to this unfamiliar stranger in their midst.

Fanny Blake's What Women Want is a novel about love and life and the challenges of female friendship that women face as they try to decide what they want--and come to realize what they really need.
