The Confession Club by Elizabeth Berg

In the third of Elizabeth Berg’s Mason series, female friends meet to eat, drink and discuss past mistakes, indiscretions and other secrets that they have never divulged to others.  At the end of this confession, the women provide the confessor with non-judgmental acceptance and absolution.

We see the return of many of our favourite characters introduced in the first two books in the series including Maddie who returns to Mason after living in New York.  We also see the introduction of new characters including John, a Vietnam vet suffering from PTSD and homeless, who walks into Mason and makes a home out of a dilapidated building. This character is beautifully written and brings to the forefront the importance of not judging others, especially without knowing their story.

This book is absolutely lovely and a joy to read. It speaks of friendship, kindness, acceptance and community - we need more of these values in our world.

Thank you to Netgalley and Random House for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here.

 I rate this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5.
