    1 thought on “Tuesday Night Miracles”

    1. I stayed up late reading this one. It was interesting. My thoughts are still churning around a few plots that didn't get the resolution that I, the reader, wanted to see. Isn't that how life is though? We don't always get the resolutions to scenarios or interactions that we want to see. Radish left me with some happy endings and some almost happy endings that have enough glimmer of hope that I can almost convince myself to make up the happy ending.I appreciated each woman's journey that led her [...]

    2. Glad to have been lead to this book as a book club read. New author to me, but I liked her.I found the whole premise of this story interesting- four women, all at different stages in life and different places in life in general - all dealing with anger and brought together by Olivia. It was interesting to watch them all come to terms with what brought them to the boiling point, and figure out how to go forward. Early on I found myself really disliking Jane, but as the story goes on and you find [...]

    3. Jane beats a real estate broker bloody with her stiletto heel. Kit lays into her brother with a broken wine bottle. Physically and mentally abused by her husband, Leah finally takes it out on her children. Grace uses her own car as a battering ram on her daughter's boyfriend's car, totaling both vehicles.I can imagine that any woman - possibly any man, too - would be able to see themselves in the shoes of one of these characters. Angry and pushed to the limit. Committing crimes of passion. Each [...]

    4. Kris Radish has become one of my favorite authors. She really knows women and how to write about women.Tuesday Night Miracles is right up there with my other favorite of hers: Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral. The group of women in this book have all come together for anger management. A moment when they found themselves out of control and a destroyer of common sense. The Doctor in the book who runs the class is also a woman and she is trying some experimental therapy. The Doctor also [...]

    5. charlotteswebofbooks.I think what I enjoyed most about this novel is that I could see pieces of myself in each of the women. For example, Kit. I could actually see my Mother in Kit. Right down to being the only daughter and sleeping by her Mother's bedside while taking care of her. But it is *ME* that would go after my uncles with a wine bottle, not my mother. LOL. None of these women, with the exception of maybe Leah, have lives not that different from yours or mine. Each of these women have da [...]

    6. Choosing Tuesday Night Miracles, by Kris Radish, and settling in for a serious read is like taking a long, brisk walk on a crisp cold day. This novel revived me and pulled me into the lives of characters with problems many of us can relate to. There is no sedentary involvement on the reader's part. Not since How To Make An American Quilt by Whitney Otto have I been so interested in a group of women and their stories. Dr. Olivia Bayer is a therapist closing in on retirement without truly taking a [...]

    7. I am so glad our book group picked this book to read. I have never read anything by Kris Radish but I plan to in the future. For some reason I thought her books were on the humorous side, which I am not a fan of. 4 very different women each have an event happen in their lives (each their own, not one event involving all 4) & they end up having to take a court ordered anger management class, led by an earth mother type psychologist, Dr Olivia Bayer.We learn a little about each woman & how [...]

    8. Four women are instructed by the court to take Anger Management classes. They meet on Tuesday nights with the esteemed Dr. Olivia Bayer, who swears this will be her last group before she retires; if she retires is up in the air, because she has decided to do something different, even unorthodox, with these women and if it fails it could be the end of her long career and a worst case situation for the women. Kris Radish has written an entertaining novel that is also thought provoking and touches [...]

    9. I usually love Kris Radish's books. "The Elegant Gathering of White Snows" and "Dancing Naked at the Edge of Dawn" have permanent places on my bookshelf. I was so excited to find out she had a new book out, but this one was my first disappointment from this author. I had trouble connecting with the characters and felt that Radish din't delve as deeply into the souls of the women who inhabit this story as she has done in the past. And her use of the dog's voice to give us details of Olivia's pers [...]

    10. Just loved this book! Four women in court-ordered anger management classes and their mature, creative and passionate therapist go on a journey of discovery. Anger doesn't protect, it isolates. Anger expressed well connects, allows for growth and change, makes possible seeing past one's own experiences and grows compassion for others' lives. The women - Leah, Kit, Jane, and Grace start out a little flat in their anger. Then Ms Radish lets these characters and their motivations, behaviors, humilia [...]

    11. I absolutely loved this book. From the first page I was hooked. Have now emailed my book club to tell them that it is a 'must read'. Am now going to search out her other books!I was amazed at how insightful this author was with angers we've all had those moments that we're thankful there wasn't a knife or a gun around! Awesome, awesome book!

    12. I loved the first half of this book! But had to force myself to read the second half; too long and tedious. Also the changing point of views, often several times on one page, drove me nuts. Too bad as it had such potential.

    13. Did not enjoy this one. The writing and character development were so shallow. The scenes and dialogue seemed forced. The only reason I gave it more than one star was because the author did NOT end it with the perfect, predictable happy ending.

    14. Reasons I love Kris Radish's newest novel TUESDAY NIGHT MIRACLES:-The main character, Olivia, is a wonderful therapist, who thinks outside the box and makes miracles happen. (I am a social workerI love the profession!)-Olivia love Jameson whiskey of my favorite drinks! -The novel addresses real stresses women face everyday and Radish does so quite magically.-Radish touches the soul of women and writes so honesty that it causes the reader to become emotionally invested in the characters and their [...]

    15. Kris Radish is on my short list of Authors on whose books I will spend money without even reading the back cover. Her books always speak of the growth into fully confident, loving, independent adulthood. This book intrigued me because it has an adult, court ordered group of five women making up an anger management class. The anger management class I taught once was teenagers, and I had a lot less freedom to teach from the heart than Olivia does in this book, because she is retiring and moving to [...]

    16. This is the first book I read by Krish RadishI think I found a new author ! I love, the story lineIt's interesting and different, it's about 5 womenIn a anger management class. The class takesSeveral field trips all planned uniquely by theDr Olivia Bayer, a free spirited psychologist who has a keen sense for her patients, she wants to retire but not untill she finishes this odd type of anger management, and helps these 4 women, they meet Tuesday nights and she is believing for a miracle with thi [...]

    17. This book follows 4 women in a court-ordered anger management class plus the life of their psychologist. The assignments that are given are a little off course but are an experiment in rehabilitation. The women could choose to change the course of their lives or stay and live the way they currently do. Will the anger take over or can these women find a new way to live? The assignments are tailored to each woman and helps them take a look inside themselves. The goal is to get each woman to choose [...]

    18. I was a bit skeptical about this book, it was given to me because a friend wasn't sure what she thought about it and wanted my opinion. I didn't honestly think that it sounded that great but was willing to give it a try. Just put it down and I have to say that I did enjoy it. I was really curious about the characters and felt that they were really easy to relate to and care about. In fact I found myself wanting to no know more about these four women who ended up in this alternative anger managem [...]

    19. I will read more of her work. This book helped me make sense of a 30 year marriage that was both wonderful and horrible. At now 66, I am still working on getting it right and getting it better. This helped me feel that it is okay to still be working on what will work for me. and closure of a 30 year sad/happy marriage. Thank you for your honesty Kris.I will read more of her work. This book helped me make sense of a 30 year marriage that was both wonderful and horrible. At now 66 I am still worki [...]

    20. I became of a fan of Radish's books after reading "The Elegant Gathering of White Swans" many years ago. Like that title this and her others the theme is the bonding of women who are usually very different but find common ground.This one is one of her best. Four women from different backgrounds come together in a court-ordered anger management program led by a female therapist. Over the months of Tuesday night meetings they come to respect one another and themselves through Dr.Bayer's unique the [...]

    21. I absolutely LOVED this book. This book chronicles the journey of four women sentenced to anger management classes. The journey that these women take, along with their group therapist, is one that many women can relate to. While the end of one women's journey is probably less common, and the fact that they went to court mandated anger management, there is something for all of us to relate to. In a society where women are not supposed to lose their cool or ever express emotion, this book does a g [...]

    22. The book was good and i think every woman of a certain age can identify with that moment of anger when but by the grace of God you do not cross that line like the characters in the book did. I like Kris Radish's books because they are also about women and the bonds that women form and how we guide and help each other learn and grow and experience life. And i always identify with something in every single one of her characters. While i liked this book i was disappointed. I just felt like she did [...]

    23. This book is about 4 women who are attending a weekly anger management class - court ordered. I really enjoyed this book - getting to know each of them and what led them to the class (I can understand how they got there and can see bits and pieces of myself in each of them). I loved their weekly assignments and getting to understand how their journeys were going. Tuesday Night Miracles was the first book that I've read by Kris Radish - I picked this book up at the libarby because I thought the c [...]

    24. Incredibly touching.Wonderfully empowering. Life changing. Made me take a hard look at my own life and the changes I need to make and the anger I need to face. Id give it 10 stars.
