In the bestselling tradition of The Friday Night Knitting Club and The Jane Austen Book Club, three women find unexpected answers, happiness, and one another, with Meryl Streep movies as their inspiration.

Two sisters and the cousin they grew up with after a tragedy are summoned home to their family matriarch’s inn on the coast of Maine for a shocking announcement. Suddenly, Isabel, June, and Kat are sharing the attic bedroom—and barely speaking. But when innkeeper Lolly asks them to join her and the guests in the parlor for weekly Movie Night—it’s Meryl Streep month—they find themselves sharing secrets, talking long into the night . . . and questioning everything they thought they knew about life, love, and one another.

Each woman sees her complicated life reflected through the magic of cinema: Isabel’s husband is having an affair, and an old pact may keep her from what she wants most . . . June has promised her seven-year-old son that she will somehow find his father, who he’s never known . . . and Kat is ambivalent about accepting her lifelong best friend’s marriage proposal. Through everything, Lolly has always been there for them, and now Isabel, June, Kat—and Meryl—must be there for her. Finding themselves. Finding each other. Finding a happy ending.

The Meryl Streep Movie Club

Wow this was an emotionally charged read, I loved most all the characters but one the most Ambivalent character in the story was Kat, if ever there was someone you want to shack to wake up already, it's Kat, lolly's daughter. I hated what Ambivalent Kat does to Oli, I hope if there's a sequel that Oli is happily married with kids. This book had everything, love, infidelity being passed off as love (would never have cheated unless I loved the other person, really who says that) like that's supposed to make it better? Family reconnecting from tragedy, let's face it it had the mother load it hit the trifecta, and the best part they discussed my favourite movies, by Ms. Meryl Streep Recommend everyone read this book. I cried and cried....I know I'm a big baby.
