Meg Waite Clayton SPOILER ALERT FOR THE WEDNESDAY SISTERS (but not for The Wednesday Daughters)

I wrapped up The Wednesday Sisters with an epilogue, and thought I was done with their stories. I didn’t mean to write a sequel. But so many readers asked for one that it started me thinking. Then I was talking with someone about his children, who are biracial, and it dawned on me that Ally’s daughter, Hope, would likely have faced the kinds of identity issues many children of mixed race do. I thought those issues would be really interesting to explore, and a sequel that involved the daughters of the original five friends seemed somehow meant to be.
