No Dan Brown for me so I thought we'd read an older book that's made it back onto the bestseller list because it is $0.99 right now in e-book - The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton!

Heather Can't resist $0.99! I started this one today...so far I'm interested. I'm excited to be reading along at the same time as the group. I've been falling behind due to the library having the books checked out with lengthy wait times.

Cherylanne | 61 comments Getting back to the group reading. Little leary becuz I typically don't like weepy, emotional, multi-generational "womens' novels. BUT I was also wrong about the Jodi Piccoult book and this one is $.99 to boot. xxoocf


Lisa This is a nice novel that was completely off my radar. Somehow I missed it the first time around and couldn't resist the sale price! The discussion of the importance of women's friendships as we proceed through life was my favorite part. Sometimes I think we forget how historical occurrences affect our lives. When I reflect on my memories I usually focus on personal relationships. Wednesday Sisters ties the two together nicely


Suzanne | 12 comments I just finished reading this, and I loved it! Clayton did an amazing job describing the complexities of friendships between women, and the challenges we all face as women, wives and mothers. It was also wonderful how she wove in the historical happenings that impacted these women's lives. It is amazing how far women have come in a single generation, although in many ways, we still have far to go!

I really enjoyed thus book myself. I am interested in seeing if her other books are as nice to read.

The sequel to this book is coming out soon. July I believe.

Thank you for telling me, I had no idea there was going to be a sequel. I will watch for it!

Just can't do the Dan Brown anymore but good to know.

Jenny (jennyil) | 21 comments There are a lot of other authors who have covered the same ground, and I think done it better. I would have preferred a longer book that focused a bit more on the historical context or a bit more humor. Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvick remains my favorite.

I absolutely loved Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons and all of Lorna Landvick's books!
