Getting to HappyAudiobook CD - 2010
In Getting to Happy, McMillan revisits Savannah, Gloria, Bernadine and Robin, fifteen years after we parted ways with their stories in Waiting to Exhale. Each is at her own midlife crossroads: Savannah has woken up to the fact that she's made too many concessions in her marriage and decides to face life single again -- at fifty-one. Bernadine has watched her mega-divorce settlement dwindle, been swindled by Husband #2 and conned herself into thinking that a few pills will help distract her from her pain. Robin has become a shopaholic, while a big dream of her life -- to wear a wedding dress -- has gone unrealized. And for years, Gloria has taken happiness and security for granted. But being at the wrong place at the wrong time can change everything. All four women are learning to heal past hurts, reclaim their joy and their dreams; but they return to us full of spirit, sass and faith in one another. They've exhaled; now they are learning to breathe.
