The Widows Wine Club by Julia Jarman

All For One

The Widow’s Wine Club by Julia Jarman is a delightful contemporary novel which I really enjoyed.

The novel follows three widows who meet as they are choosing their husband’s caskets. We see their journey through grief as they learn to live again.

Sometimes there are shocking discoveries made after death, which raise all kinds of emotions.

The three women band together offering love, support and encouragement as they journey through life.

There are the perils of online dating as one has to wade through the sludge in order to find the jewel.

All the characters were well drawn and realistic.

The Widow’s Wine Club was a charming light-hearted read that was amusing too – with some classic one-liners- “Janet hadn’t a clue how the non-rich lived.” I can highly recommend this book and will leave you with my favourite quote:

“Still missed the ordinary things like eating together… and not having to worry about … radiators needing bleeding.”

I received a free copy via Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.

The Widows’ Wine Club

The beginning of Janet, Viv and Zelda’s friendship could not have been less promising…

Navigating their new lives as widows, the three women venture to the same dreary bereavement group in a chilly church hall. But what bonds them is not their shared predicament, but instead how quickly they all decide to flee the depressing gathering, choosing instead to share a bottle of wine. The Three Muscat-eers is born.

The women may be down but they’re not out; in their sixties but certainly not past it. They agree a mission: to find fulfilment as single women and recover their joie de vivre. And as they start to feel ready to face the world again, the friends support each other to dive headlong into new hobbies, new adventures, and even to dip their toes into the wonderful world of dating again.

When one of the ladies gets life-changing news, there’s only one thing for it. The Widows’ Wine Club closes rank, and it’s ‘one for all and all for one’. Because when they stick together, there’s nothing the friends can’t achieve.
