Description

Meet Georgia, SuSu, Teeny, Diane, and Linda--five women who've been best friends through thirty years since high school. Sit in when they don their red hats and purple outfits to join Atlanta's Ladies Who Lunch for a delicious monthly serving of racy jokes, iced tea and chicken salad, baskets of sweet rolls, the latest Buckhead gossip, and most of all--lively support and caring through the ups and downs of their lives. When Diane discovers her banker husband has a condo (with mistress) that he bought with their retirement funds, the Red Hats swing into action and hang him with his own rope in a story that serves up laughter, friendship, revenge, high school memories, long-lost loves, a suburban dominatrix, and plenty of white wine and junk food. From the 1960s to the present, The Red Hat Club is a funny, unforgettable novel that shows the power women can find when they accept and support each other.

Praise For The Red Hat Club

"By turns humorous and poignant, this is a novel with characters so real that even non-Southerners will find them familiar."
-Library Journal

"Smith's celebration of comradeship is a loving tribute to those lifelong relationships that may defy logic but are destined to outlive many other associations. A joyous, joyful ode to the older woman."
-Booklist

"Told in first person by one of the friends, this story is a wonderful journey, as older women discover life can continue to be new and challenging after middle age...This book is not only fun to read but, for some, may even be a learning experience."
-Romantic Times Book Review


"By turns humorous and poignant, this is a novel with characters so real that even non-Southerners will find them familiar."
