In this poignant and transformative novel, bestselling author Kris Radish weaves a tale of five women yearning for change--and the potential for happiness that lies within every heart.
Free-spirited psychologist Dr. Olivia Bayer suspects she'll need a miracle to help the four wildly different women in her anger management class. Grace, a single working mother, can barely find a moment's rest. Jane, a high-profile real estate agent, is struggling in the recession. Kit, in her fifties, has had it with her taunting older brothers. And Leah, a young mother of two, is starting over after ending a troubled relationship. All have reached a crossroads, and Dr. Bayer has an unconventional plan to steer them on the right track. As the class gets taken everywhere from a bowling alley to a shooting range, the women's Tuesday meetings transform from tense, reluctant gatherings into richly rewarding experiments in female bonding. As Grace, Jane, Kit, and Leah open up--revealing secrets, swapping stories, and recovering long-lost dreams--old wounds begin to heal, new friendships are forged, and miracles manifest in the most surprising ways.

This was a nice read with good character development. The stories had depth and were likeable.
There were 5 stories going on in the book. Each woman in anger management and the counsellor.
Some elements seemed contrived, like:
The counsellor's story was told through her dog's eyes.
Also, the story set-ups. The women seemed to have polar opposite personalities. I would assume individuals in a group to have some shared qualities.
Besides that, a solid read.

Dr. Olivia Bayer, a clinical psychologist nearing the end of her career, takes on a group of four women who are court mandated to take an anger management class. Olivia tries out some different strategies and everyone in the class benefits, learns and makes life changing decisions. An enjoyable book, if a little bit long.

Kris Radish is one of my favourite authors ever! This latest novel brings together four women and a psychologist in an anger management class that is unlike any anger management class we've heard of. It's risky but has huge pay-offs, more than what has occurred in all the other classes that this psychologist has led over many years. All of the women are interesting, and annoying, and a bit self-indulgent. No one wants to be in the class, but it is court-ordered. Read and see how the women change (mostly for the better) over time. See how the psychologist is also changing. I love how Radish gets inside women and shows us who we are and how we can become better women. And giggle and laugh.
