Age is just a number for lifelong friends Bernadine, Savannah, Gloria, and Robin. Picking up over a decade after 'Waiting to Exhale' was completed, the ladies are now facing 50 and dealing with serious life changes. From failed marriages, losing a loved one, to losing a job, the foursome learn that they can still count on each other and take things day by day to find their own version of happiness.

I loved how the ladies of Waiting to Exhale embraced the fifth decade with courage. This read is a chronicle of the current events for 2005 as well. I forgot Vandross died within the last decade. The overarching theme is live life with no regrets and forgive so you can place that energy on being happy. This is a real feel good read.

I've read many of Terry McMillan's books, including Waiting to Exhale - and this was not among my favorites. It was another quick read and modestly entertaining. Looking forward to more from her, though. I agree with the other review (TED) B- at best.

I enjoyed this book!

I didn't read the first book (Waiting to Exhale) in this two-book series and maybe that would have helped. Although this book helped passed the time, it was a bit hard for me to get into. Although this is a term I really dislike the term Chick Book, I can't think of how else to describe this book. Although not terrible, I would rate this book as a B minus, at best.

"Nearly 20 years after the chick-lit classic Waiting to Exhale, Robin, Savannah, Gloria and Bernadine are back with some mid-life dramas."
A Chatelaine top pick.
