Cathie Beck was in her late thirties and finally able to exhale after a lifetime of just trying to get by.

A teenage mother harboring vivid memories of her own hardscrabble childhood, Cathie had spent years doing whatever it took to give her children the stability--or at least the illusion of it--that shed never had. More than that, through sheer will and determination, she had educated them and herself too. With her kids in college, Cathie was at last ready to have some fun. The only problem was that she had no idea how to do it and no friends to do it with.

So she put an ad in the paper for a made-up womens group: WOW . . . Women on the Way. Eight women showed up that first night, and out of that group a friendship formed, one of those meteoric, passionate, stand-by-you friendships that come around once in a lifetime and change you forever . . . if youre lucky.Praise for Cheap Cabernet: A Friendship This is a beautiful book about two remarkable women.

I read Cheap Cabernet in one breathless sitting. I gulped it down and then I sat there and let the taste of love and sorrow and redemption linger for a long time. --Alison Smith, author of Name All the AnimalsBeyond wonderful--wickedly funny, poignant, and smart. Anyone whos a fan of Mary Karr or Anne Lamott will find Cathie Becks Cheap Cabernet both laugh-out-loud hysterical--and heartbreaking.

--Elle Newmark, bestselling author of The Book of Unholy MischiefCathie Becks Cheap Cabernet is a bracing story of a woman who took the crappy hand life had dealt her and turned it into a big win. With an awe-inspiring stamina, she kept going long past the point other people--like me--wouldve quit. I devoured this empowering and very funny memoir from the first page.

--Julie Klam, author of Please Excuse My Daughter
