I absolutely LOVED this book!!! Nine people head out to a retreat house with the hopes of peace, destress, lost weight , built relationships ...and so much more!!! Each person has their own individual story about their past and the life that has led them to this retreat house! The owner and her 2 employees have incredible stories as well throughout the book! Secret after secret unravels as all nine strangers quickly must lean and depend on one another. The characters were all very interesting, with relatable issues. Nine Perfect Strangers is filled with shame, grief, addiction, identity, resentment, love...you name it!!!My only drawback to this book is the length. It was nearly pages and it really dragged out at the end. In my opinion, it could have been wrapped up a whole lot quicker!I would definitely recommend this book! It really was a great one!!!
