Four of a Kind - Valerie Frankel

This book surprised me. It was a gift and from the cover I was expecting a light chick-lit book. Instead, I got a deeply, gently woven story of four very different women and their families. It was very satisfying. You need not be a poker player to enjoy this book (I'm not). Strong women making difficult decisions and staying true to themselves to the end. And speaking of the end, I did not want it to end, but the ending made sense and was done in a nice way to bring all the stories back together.
