Goodreads:  Still reeling from her recent divorce, Christine, the beloved protagonist of Dora Heldt's uproarious Life After Forty, is sure that yet another birthday is the last thing she needs.  But here it comes nonetheless, the big 4-4, in all its lonely mid-life glory.  Making matters worse is Christine's fear that, throughout her life, she  has relied too heavily on the support of her girlfriends.  As the big day nears, she begins to think that none of those women can understand just what she is going through.  Alarmed by Christine's growing despair, her best friend and sister hatch a plan to prove her wrong: they will gather together all of Christine's old friends from the various stages of her life and throw a surprise party the likes of which she has never seen.  Of course finding all of those women turns out to be easier said than done!  Nonetheless, the final result proves to be a priceless gift, a moving and laugh-out-loud portrait of one woman's life as told through the stories of her friendship.

Kritters Thoughts:  A wonderful sequel that lived up to the first because it took the story to another level.  Christine's friends have helped her survive a separation and a divorce and now they are determined to have her reconnect with her girlfriends of the past.  The book is the chronology of her friends finding her friends from the past and gathering them all to celebrate her birthday - it was a fun journey to go on with these characters.  

Throughout this book I was thinking of the girlfriends in my life that have been there through different phrases of my life - the childhood days, the college years, the single in the city phase and now the girlfriend days.  I just wish that I could pull all the girls that have been in my life into a room and just reconnect and revisit all the good ole times.  Reading this over the holidays was perfect to help me get into the spirit of what the holiday season should be about - pulling together those who mean the most to you.  

Ok now over the sappiness - this book was a great chick lit read that was centered around female friendships and how vital they are for our past, present and future.  Each woman will enjoy this book for the appreciation we should have of the friends that surrounded us daily.  

Rating:  absolutely loved it and want a sequel
