Discover the perfect recipe for friendship this Christmas...
On the first Monday of December, every year, twelve friends gather in the evening with batches of homemade cookies wrapped in beautiful packages. They drink wine, they eat and they take turns telling the story of the cookies they have baked. Somehow these stories are always emblematic of the year that has just passed, as complicated and rich as our own lives. Lives full of sisterly love and conflict, yearning for babies and grandchildren, passion and disillusionment with men, a secret decade long affair, the loss of a job, the death of a child...
These women are as imperfect as real women, made heroic by their ability to resolve conflict, to endure and support each other. The Cookie Club is as involving, heartwarming and uplifting a story as you'll ever read.
Ann Pearlman's first book was a memoir, Infidelity, which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize. This is her first work of fiction and has already been optioned for film. Ann lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where The Cookie Club is set.
