From Margaret Hawkins comes a mesmerizing portrait of friendship that explores seven women’s lives with a generous embrace and wondrous wisdom.
Lydia is having a
party—it’s a party she hosts every year for six female friends who treasure the
midwinter bash. Over a table laden with a feast of food and wine, the women
revel in sharing newsy updates, simmering secrets, and laughter. As this
particular evening unfolds, Lydia prepares to make a shattering announcement.
As we follow these friends
through their party preparations, we meet flawed but lovable characters who are
navigating the hassles of daily chores while also meditating in stolen moments
on their lives, their regrets, their complicated relationships, and their
deepest desires. When Lydia’s announcement shocks them all, they rediscover the
enduring bonds of friendship and find their lives changing in unexpected ways.
Tender, wryly funny, and
exquisitely written, Lydia’s Party poignantly considers both the
challenges of everyday life and of facing our fears while creating characters
whose foibles and feistiness will capture listeners’ hearts. Download and start listening now!
