Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Writing a new future takes a little time - and a lot of love. Jean Vison never expected to run a book club, until her life took an unexpected turn. Now, with Jean's husband gone, what began as an off-the-cuff idea has grown into a group of six women who meet the second Tuesday of every month for a potluck supper, for wine and laughter - and for books. There's Loretta, who deals with the lack of intimacy in her marriage by diving into erotic novels. Dorothy, whose ruffian sons are a never-ending source of stress. May entertains the group with her outrageous dating stories, while Mitzi finds something political to rant about in every book - including Loretta's trashy romances. Even Janet, with her mousy shyness and constant blush, has helped Jean rediscover the joy in life. So when Jean's family starts unraveling again - her daughter forced into rehab and her troubled teen granddaughter, Bailey, coming to live with her in the interim - she turns to the book club for comfort and support. And, together, they all, even Bailey, discover that family is what you make of it, especially the family you choose . . . Praise for The Sister Season 'A really wonderful book and a pleasure to read.' Jen Lancaster, New York Times Bestselling Author of Twisted Sisters and The Tao of Martha 'An uplifting story about . . . the redemptive power of familial love.'
