The Girls of August
The Girls of August - Anne Rivers Siddons This is a beach read, and was a library book club selection. It was refreshing to read, especially in the heat of summer, more so, since it is a story buoyed by friendship and sisterhood. It's not all smooth sailing though, as the years meander along. After a few years of separation following the death of one them, they come together again, this time, with a new candidate. This is the story of how they find each other anew, and forge stronger ties.

While reading this, I thought of all my girl friends, dear sisters to me, and of all the thick and thin we've been through, and for being there for each other. Life and the years have led us all in different directions, but the cord that binds us all remains strong. I like how this story celebrates that. A 3½-star read.

Nora, Nora - Anne Rivers Siddons

Audiobook

I've found a new author! I absolutely loved this book. Debra Monk did a wonderful job with the narration. The story was a coming of age for a young misfit girl and a visit from a cousin who shakes everything up. The ending was wonderful. I wish we got to see what happens next. I'm definitely going to read more from this author.

Review: The Girls of August by Anne Rivers Siddons
The Girls of August - Anne Rivers Siddons

Definitely not my favorite by her. It did include some beautiful details about the setting, which is something I admire in all her books, since I'm from the South and she gets the smallest details just right. In this one, I didn't grow attached to any of the characters and the ending left a sour taste in my mouth. I sure hope the next book redeems her!

The Girls of August - Anne Rivers Siddons

The Girls of August by Anne River Siddons should probably be titled The Mean Girls of August. It is a rushed, relatively undeveloped story that goes something like this. Mean girls (who are really middle aged women) unite against the new girl. New girl perseveres. Repeat. Repeat some more. Insert some big melodramatic events that may or may not change relationships. Repeat. The end. That's it. A disappointing re-introduction to the author's work for me.
