Four women, lifelong friends, are turning 40–and what a year it is.Roz, the perfectly controlled (and controlling) politician’s wife, is trying to keep her family together as she recovers from breast cancer and her husband runs for the biggest election of his career. Though he has strayed from her in the past, she has always been there for him–but all that is in jeopardy now that she has learned he has been sleeping with one of her three best friends.Tam has been avoiding commitment all her life, both in an academic career that shows no sign of becoming permanent, and in her sexually combustive affairs with men. But she’s ready to make some radical departures–including trying to return the interest of a sexy hunk who has more than just looks.Ever since her husband’s early death, Arneatha has immersed herself in her work as an Episcopal priest who runs a school and several community programs. But something is turning cold and brittle inside her, and for the first time in her life she questions her faith. Her last shreds of certainty are stripped from her when she is unexpectedly thrust into the role of mother–and finds herself falling in passionate, school-girlish love with a handsome African man.Finally there is Audrey, whose climb back from the depths of alcoholism nearly costs her her life, but brings renewal to the friends’ commitment to each other.Vibrant, funny, heartwrenching, and real, Pride is an unforgettable novel.
