Great story, altho I didn't like any of the ladies when I first started reading. They all seemed so whiny. But as you learn their stories, and get to know them, they become real people. I'll definitely look for more of Ms. Hilderbrand's books.

First book I have ever read by this author. I enjoyed this book. It made me laugh & cry. The sisters & friends in this book. Had so much in life to deal with. I found myself pulling for these woman. I also think the male babysitter Josh added alot to the book also. I plan on reading more by this author.

At first I trouble getting into this book, very slow start. But after a chapter or two I couldn't put the book down and finished it in one night!!! Great characters and intertwined storyline. Touching story.

Fantastic summer beach read. The plot lines seemed mildly implausible but the characters were great and lovable. Makes you want to grab your closest girlfriends and your kids and give them a big hug.

Barefoot was a story about friendships, family, love and death that touches all of us in different ways. My emotions were all over the board while reading this story. Compelling characters pulled me in so much that I couldn't put the book down!

I was a bit disappointed in this book. It just wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Not on my list of recommendations.
