Every Thursday at 8 a.m., four women meet for breakfast and to talk. To tell their stories, recount their sorrows and their joys. To offer each other encouragement and unstinting support.

Clare has just been through a devastating divorce. She's driven by anger and revenge...until she learns something about her ex-husband that forces her to look deep inside for the forgiveness and compassion she's rejected and for the person she used to be.

Elizabeth is widowed, in her late 50s, a successful professional, a woman who's determined not to waste another second of her life. And if that life should include romantic possibilities, well, why not?

Karen is in her 20s, the years for taking risks, testing your dreams. Her dream is to be an actor. So what if her parents think she should be more like her sister, the veryrespectable Victoria?

Julia is turning 40 this year. Her husband's career is established, her kids are finally in their teens, and she's just started her own business. Everything's going according to plan...until she gets pregnant! Download and start listening now!
