'Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons' by Lorna LandvikAngry Housewives Eating Bons Bons by Lorna Landvik is the story of five women in a book club in Minnesota from 1968 to 1998. These "angry housewives" do much more than eat bon bons. They support each other through good and bad, finding a lifeline in their friendships.

I read this quite a while ago, and remember I enjoyed it, but that's all I remember about it.

Vintage Books

Set in the South during the 1960s, this coming of age story deals with race, love and Lily Owen's search for a connection with her mother who died when she was young. It's an especially good summer read, when you can imagine sipping Coke on a porch and smelling jasmine.

I have read this several times and enjoyed it, as well as the movie they made of it.

Blood of Flowers was great. I love historical fiction.
 
I didn't like The Time Travelers Wife at all though I know many do. That book made me angry on quite a few things.
 
Read, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, it wasn't my thing.
 
Tried to read the Secret Life of Bees, couldn't get into though the movie was good enough.
 
Can't tell the title on the midwife book. Not sure if I've read it or not. I've read a book about a midwife that was very good though.

The Time Traveler's Wife is one of my all-time favorites!!!

I've also read:  The Secret Life of Bees, the Ya-Ya's, & Angry Housewives.

Blood of Flowers and Midwives are both on my TBR stack. 

No particular plans to read Splendor of Silence.

 I loved the Time Traveler's Wife.  I also recommend Midwives.  It drew me into the story and I thought about it for days afterwards  I liked Angry Housewives and Secret Lifeof Bees.  I thought I'd like the Divine Secets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood but didn't.  I'll have to read the other two.
