Summary of Willing Spirits Summary of Willing Spirits Reviews for Willing Spirits An Excerpt from Willing Spirits
A novel Jodi Picoult calls "beautifully written, full of wit...and heart," from the author of The Sinner's Guide to Confession."A paean to the healing power and enduring strength of female friendship."
Both teachers in their forties, Jane Hoffman and Gwen Baker have a friendship that has helped them endure. It was Jane who looked after Gwen when her husband left her with two young sons to raise. And when Jane comes home one day unexpectedly and finds her husband in a shameless act of betrayal, she turns to Gwen for support.
Now, tested by additional personal crises, Jane and Gwen face new challenges-as mothers, as daughters, as women. And in the process, they will learn unexpected truths about their friendship-and themselves.
"Willing Spirits is like a string of pearls-one familiar, fragile moment linked to another and another to form the rope of women's lives twined together."
"Jane and Gwen's friendship captures a closeness between two women that surpasses all other types of relationships."
"What a warm, oh-so human account of women's friendship! These are women I know, and I'm recommending this book to all my female friends and students."
- Rosemary Daniell
