Meet five North Carolina women who are about to change the way you think about friendship. For Rhonda, a gritty, fun-loving hairdresser in tight jeans, the sights and smells of Ridgecrest Nursing Center are depressing. But before she can change her mind about working there, two residents glue themselves to her: Margaret, droll and whip-smart, with a will of iron that never fails her even when her body does, and Bernice, an avid country music fan who is rarely lucid. Together with Lorraine, their church-going, God-questioning nurse, and her daughter, April, bright and ambitious, they lock arms in courage and humor for a journey that speaks to us all--of how we live and die, of how we love and forgive.

This is a strong recommendation for the book written by Todd Johnson. The lives of 5 women intertwine through each chapter and slowly the lives of each unfold for the reader. The author has captured the beauty and grace of friendship among women who do not share common beginnings. I am amazed at how well the author captured the humor and concerns of these five women.
