The story itself could have made for a good novel but I didn't think it was written well. It didn't flow. Conversations felt too "scripted" rather than natural. The story would be taken over by unneeded information (i.e. - I now know everything one needs to know about perimenopause and menopause). When making a comparison, too many items were compared rather than just using a couple. Inconsistency when referencing true life (i.e. - it was OK to reference the Washington Bullets (Wizards' prior name) playing at the Verizon Center but had to change the team names when referencing the Chicago Bears and LA Raiders - why?) Those are some some of the issues I had. There also didn't seem to be anything that grabbed you to keep reading. If it hadn't been for my bookclub, I probably wouldn't have finished it. ( )

“Fourth Sunday” is a novel about seven professional women who form a book club. Out of the formation of the book club, the women build solid friendships and they share their life experiences with one another. No subject is off-limits for the book club members to discuss and to share their opinions on such as their careers, relationships, and simply everyday life.

“Fourth Sunday” was quite refreshing to read since it focuses on the lives of professional, African-American women. The authors did a wonderful job of incorporating current events, political affairs, and medical jargon into the book’s pages. My only drawback was the ‘One Year Later’ chapter. It seemed like a rushed ending after a very detailed book. Otherwise, this was a solid book and a quick read as it was completed in one day.
