It’s time for another girl’s night out with a Jones-Hope-Wooten comedy, the authorof The Savannah Sipping Society. Five Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage, "The Sweet Delilah", on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh, and meddle in each other's lives. The story focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years.
