The brilliant writing of Terry McMillan brought back my love for reading. I am constantly in awe of Terry McMillan’s writing style and storylines. Her storylines are realistic but raw and dynamic enough to leave an element of surprise. Getting to Happy by Terry McMillan is an excellent example of this. Many have watched or read the book “Waiting to Exhale” but few have read the follow-up, Getting to Happy. Getting to Happy is a sequel to Waiting to Exhale, picking up on the lives of characters Bernadine, Gloria, Savannah, and Robin years later. Supporting each other through motherhood, heartbreak, grief, addiction, and love, these four friends are the epitome of friendship goals.
