I always read Rona Jaffe from the time she wrote Class Reunion years ago, and it was such a great novel.
The Room Mating Season introduces us to four (4) young ladies who venture from different parts of the United States to work in New York City where they imagine life will be great fun.
Let me introduce you to Leigh the perfectionist and casting director; Cady the vivacious and resilient school teacher; Vanessa, the 'always on the move and full of fun' stewardess, and finally Susan the mousy and quiet receptionist who never fits into the group no matter what.
In Ms. Jaffe's new novel, we live with the girls from the time they start out as young girls in their early twenties, and experience all their joys, the ups and downs with the men in their lives, along with the struggle for their identities. We are with them as they ease into their adult years which becomes challenging and extremely traumatic. And again through their marriages, even as they pass midle-age and run right into their sixties, where by now they have acquired children and grandchildren.
It was a delightful read with a great diversity in characters you won't forget in a hurry. This book would be an ideal Birthday gift. I recommend it and gave it five stars.

I've read all of Rona Jaffe's books. They are a comforting read as they are nicely written and you get to know the characters. The plots are usually predictable but still enjoyable. Her books are always good.

Started off nice,easy reading but then they all grew up too fast and got too serious and wordy..nothing like the brilliant The Best ofEverything
