Abstract:

In the early 1960s, a group of young women form a clandestine book club as a way of supporting one another and to provide an escape from the men in their lives. When the time comes to pass on their secrets to a new generation of women, they pick an unlikely group, who are virtual strangers, including M.J., recently relocated from New York City to the small California town where the book club meets; Britt, a local real estate agent with a slacker husband; Jules, a party planner who is estranged from her high school sweetheart husband; and Addie, a free spirit with no intention of settling down. Against all odds, the group meets according to the terms set up by the original members, but as the new gals struggle to form a similar bond, the future of the club is put in jeopardy.
