Every August, four women would gather together to spend a week at the beach, renting a new house each year. The ritual began when they were in their twenties and their husbands were in medical school, and became a mainstay of every summer thereafter. Their only criteria was oceanfront and isolation, their only desire to strengthen their far-flung friendships. They called themselves the Girls of August. But when one of the Girls dies tragically, the group slowly drifts apart and their vacations together are brought to a halt. Years later, a new marriage reunites them and they decide to come together once again on a remote barrier island off the South Carolina coast. There, far from civilization, the women make startling discoveries that will change them in ways they never expected.

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 so...
