Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna LandvikThe women of Freesia Court are convinced that there is nothing good coffee, delectable desserts, and a strong shoulder can’t fix. Laughter is the glue that holds them together—the foundation of a book group they call AHEB (Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons), an unofficial “club” that becomes much more. It becomes a lifeline. Holding on through forty eventful years, there’s Faith, a lonely mother of twins who harbors a terrible secret that has condemned her to living a lie; big, beautiful Audrey, the resident sex queen who knows that with good posture and an attitude you can get away with anything; Merit, the shy doctor’s wife with the face of an angel and the private hell of an abusive husband; Kari, a wise woman with a wonderful laugh who knows the greatest gifts appear after life’s fiercest storms; and finally, Slip, a tiny spitfire of a woman who isn’t afraid to look trouble straight in the eye.
This stalwart group of friends depicts a special slice of American life, of stay-at-home days and new careers, of children and grandchildren, of bold beginnings and second chances, in which the power of forgiveness, understanding, and the perfectly timed giggle fit is the CPR that mends broken hearts and shattered dreams.

ANGRY HOUSEWIVES EATING BON BONS
Lorna Landvik's Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons is about book clubs -- the camaraderie, the friendships and the lifelong bond created among members. The books are a backdrop to the story and the book club intended for book discussions, eating, wining and conversing is fun, but the stories of the five women are what make the story so heartwarming, uplifting and inspiring. Book clubs mean different things to different people, but for the women on the suburban street of Freesia Court in small-town Minnesota in the 60's, their book club is a lifeline. Faith, a woman who hides her shameful past behind her life as a suburban housewife and a mother of twins, puts it best: "…when I finally got smart enough to go to a therapist, she asked me how I had held things together all these years. I belong to a book club. The five women have had very different lives, but behind each of their smiles are stories and secrets. The book spans forty years as the women smoke and drink and bond.
