All the covington books are a joy to read.
Third book in the Ladies of Covington series. Very cozy, laid back, enjoyable read about three senior ladies facing life's many challenges - watching their neighbors and children go through trials, and facing life's everyday challenges with wit, determination and grace. Very nice read - love the series.
The third entry in Medlicott's cozy series about North Carolina roomies Hannah, Amelia and Grace presents new trials for the aging trio. Hannah's estranged daughter Laura, injured in a boating accident, moves in while recuperating; shutterbug Amelia volunteers at a hospital and gets an opportunity to show her work in New York City; and Grace, who lives to bake and eat, is in denial concerning a diagnosis of diabetes. Meanwhile, all three must contend with the illness of close friend and neighbor Harold. Just as the youthful concerns of series like Sweet Valley High are targeted toward a niche of readers of a certain juvenile age, the geriatric concerns of the ladies of Covington¢hip replacements, adjusting to sleeping alone after the death of a spouse, making dietary concessions to age and ruminating on where the soul goes¢determine the audience here as well. More like a lengthy once-a-year holiday update on the doings of family and friends than a novel, the lead-by-example episodes should still offer reassurances to readers facing similar problems, though even they might find it hard to endure the painfully stilted dialogue. Helping underprivileged children, organizing round-the-clock care for terminally ill friends, healing wounded birds: if not exactly exciting, these activities are carried out by the sort of well-meaning women you'd want in your corner in a pinch.
A great book in the Ladies of Covington Series, although it can stand on it's own. The characters are "real" and life happens.
3rd in the Covington series by Joan Medlicott.
The ladies of Covington are back in their 3rd book. Laura, Hannah's daughter, becomes a player in their story as she and her mother mend their past misunderstandings. This is a great series for summer reading.
These three widows inspire us with dignity and confidence, humor and affection.
I just love these three gals! They feel like old friends to me! Ms. Medlicott has perfectly captured the ladies characters.
Once again, Joan Medlicott, in her Covington series, has written a book that I could not put down. Great reading.
I have come to love this series. I love the stories of these 3 charming ladies and their families, friends and life in Covington. Can't wait to read the next one.
Still reading this book but love the series so far. Would recommend them to others. Great read. Thanks
This is the best of the first three, just a great read!
