I didn't realize this was the third book of a series. It was a struggle to remember who was who of the smaller characters but that could be because I hadn't read the first two books. Other than that it was a pleasant book but I didn't find it too enthralling.

As always, Berg's writing and world-building are impeccable in this novel. However, I wanted to enjoy this book as much as the series' first two, but I feel that this story suffered from the same issue that Night of Miracles did: there were too many characters to meet and not enough time to get to know each one.

I love Elizabeth Berg's books. I read The Confession Club, Then Truluv and when reading The Night of Miracles I realized these were a series. First in the series is Arthur Truluv, then Night of Miracles and the third in the series The Confession Club. i suggest the library mention these books as a series in the listings. Another Berg series is Katie Nash series: 1)Durable Goods, 2)Joy School,3)True to Form

Another sweet story about the bonds of friendship and how they get us through life. I enjoy following some of the same characters from book to book.

I enjoyed 'The Confession Club'.

I liked the quirky characters. However, I don't think we were given enough opportunity to know the characters. There are amusing moments and poignant thoughts, but the characters feel more like long time neighbors who wave hello and chat with me occasionally rather than friends.

The stories of all these characters were disjointed and there was nothing to grab onto to actually know them. It's such a departure from Elizabeth Berg's normally in depth characters. John, the one character we get to know best, we don't really know until nearly the end of the book.

I still enjoyed it, but, as a reviewer elsewhere said, "This book was a quick and pleasant read with no surprises and nothing startling or beautiful about it. "

Sadly, I probably will not remember anything about 'The Confession Club' when, if, Mason #4 debuts.

This is my favorite of the 3 books in this series by one of my favorite authors. Endearing and colorful characters, charming small town life, precocious children and troubling modern day problems made this a compelling read that kept me up all night! I hope there’ll be another sequel!

A fun quick read for the summer.

Perfect book for the spring of 2020, a romance with life.

This book was fabulous! Within these pages is a message of acceptance; acceptance of self, acceptance of other, and acceptance and understanding of our flawed natures. I highly recommend that you read this series; however, you'll get the most from this book if you start with the 1st book in the series, "The Story of Arthur Truluv".

It took me a long time to get into the book, and it felt as stifling as life in the rural Midwest.
