Debbie Macomber is a #1 New York Times and USA Today best-selling author and it comes as no surprise that she has more than 100 million copies of her books in print.

Her forte is writing about and for women in a way that you can relate to. Thursdays at Eight is about four women who met at a class and are continuing their newfound friendship by meeting for breakfast every Thursday morning.
These four women are all different from one another, in age, occupation and marital status, and yet they share the bond of sisterhood. This is a feel-good book about these women who all have their personal challenges, but rally together to provide support and encouragement.

A great light book to read on the beach or in a hammock on a nice summer day!

Diana Young- World Traveler – currently sailing in the South Pacific for six months and #1 Amazon Best-selling author of Financial Fitness for Beginners.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Tammy Cook, Renaissance Mind on March 11 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Journals and stories of four women who met in a college writing class. A lasting friendship was formed, and the women decide to keep meeting for coffee and encouragement on Thursday mornings. Each woman is at a different phase of her life than the rest, and relies on the others to carry her through.
Sappy, trite writing and a pretty predictable story. Also, seems to preach to me that a woman can't be happy without a man in her life. *groan* The journal entries were interchangeable - except for the specific people in each story, any entry could've been written by any of the four women. They had no distinctive writing voice. The journal style also seemed very undeveloped to me, especially for women who all considered themselves such wonderful writers.
Here's an example of the dialogue between one of the woman's teenage sons:
"I was watching reruns of The Brady Bunch."
"The Brady Bunch?" Alex repeated. "Why would you do that when there's all those stations? What about VH-1?"
Ehhh, yes, most 19 or 20 year old boys like VH-1. Mmm hmm...
The best thing about this book were the quotations before each chapter. Save your time - just read those.

Four perfect plots with four imperfect women, but, you just know that their imperfections make them more perfect! The situations had potential, but, it became a puff piece. Through the first chapters my underlying thought was that these problems would be so much more with less financial support. Did each woman have to be so wealthy? Where was the average income? It has to be more fun to write about someone who can dine out whenever they want rather than the woman who has to balance going to a restaurant weekly, or more often, with buying enough groceries or gasoline. I guess if no bills exist you can concentrate on the lack of a man or ungrateful kids. This book was a quick read, I found myself skimming through because it is trite and forgettable, except for the chapter quotes. I copied them out in a journal. Yes, I journal and I hope there is more reality in my words. I've had two of the plotlines happen in my life.

Thursdays at Eight is an enchanting story about four very different women who have reached a critical point in their lives, a point where decisions made or not made will result in life altering changes with no return trip.
At first I thought this would be a nice warm, fuzzy read but after finishing the story I realized it is really a story about all people, that we all face stunning challenges at different points in our lives. This tale portrays the importance of friendship and family and the ability to discern what is truly important and what is merely desire. I enjoyed this book far more than I thought I would, and after finishing it and thinking about it, I felt that it nudges you to examine your own life and the choices we all make.
The four women range in age from their twenties to early fifties. Their marital status, married, divorced, single and widowed, some have children, some do not. The amazing thing is that they could almost be combined into an "every-woman" and this is what draws the reader into their lives and their decisions that they reach as they meet for breakfast each Thursday morning to discuss their week.

Thursdays at Eight was my first Debbie Macomber book. The four main characters were somewhat stereotypical, but life in general is full of stereotypes. Of course, things pretty well work out for everyone in the end, and a MULTITUDE of subjects is covered in the process such as spousal abuse, cheating husbands, serious illness, death, widowhood, empty nest syndrome, being dumped, angry children, late pregnancy, big dreams, politically incorrect men, and true friendships. Unfortunately, there is a bit of an implication that everyone in all their various circumstances finds true happiness by finding true love eventually, or if true love hasn't happened yet, then it is at least on the visible horizon! But hey, that's what makes it a romance. Actually, one of the book's best points is that Macomber starts each chapter with a quote; some inspiring, some funny, and some relevant.
