Up Island:

If you have ever imagined a trip to Martha’s Vineyard in your mind, Anne Rivers Siddons book Up Island captures that shining landscape in minute detail. Up Island is the story of Molly Redwine, a charming Southern woman, wife of a successful businessman and mother to two children. The story begins with a seemingly innocent rash on her posterior that serves as the first sign she’s in for trouble. While on business trips, Molly’s husband has been having an affair with a coworker. When he

Two stunning novels combined into one great book. That’s what you get with this pairing of Anne River Siddons’s “Up Island” and “Low Country” While the tales are completely different there are enough parallels that make them a perfect complement to one another.

This is a combination of two of her books - last winter during a family emergency, I just threw it into my bag as almost an afterthought. Don't know if it was due to my circumstances, but I got totally engrossed in these books. Thought they were wonderful. Sometimes, even now, I wonder where the characters are now - what finally happened to them? Great reads for that time in my life!

Up Island was the better of the two novels. Low Country's main character, Caro, did not generate my sympathies. This is the second novel of Ms. Siddons' that I've read where the heroine's child has died. A little too depressing for me.

I really enjoyed this story about a middle-aged woman who starts a new life in a new place, struggling with the lost love of an unfaithful husband.
