The mark of an excellent writer is her ability to catch and hold on to the reader, taking them by the proverbial hand and leading them down one story path after another, each more intriguing than the next. Suddenly and oh-so-satisfyingly, you find yourself hooked. In Connections, I found myself in such a delicious predicament.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the author’s first two novels, Guider’s latest effort takes the cake.

A riveting story of a modern American family that spans the 1950s to present time, and across a sweeping landscape punctuated by traumatic major events. Two sisters as opposite as salt and pepper drive the story, with other finely-drawn personalities woven throughout.

You don’t want to miss this book! Elizabeth Guider engages you from the beginning by involving you in the complex relationships within the Masterson family, especially the two sisters, Callie and Mellie. The issues are familiar, intense, and told from the point of view of each character. Besides being intrigued by the family issues, I identified with the references to real life events which have happened from the 1960’s to the present time. As a reader, I was absorbed into the family’s story, b ...more
