Very good novel about three generations of women, coming together...and the problems they face..How they overcome them, and the love and friendships that form
A typical sappy story from Joan Medlicott. Easy read. Right up my alley.
This is a nice story about the distances that can grow between family and the lengths to which we will go to preserve them....or erase them. A nice story with likable characters.
A book of forgiveness and acceptance. An awful lot of drama for one novel - I prefer Medlicott's Covington series for depth. But a nice read. Includes women of many ages and the depths of their experience. Makes me think about my friends' childhoods and wonder what might have happened to influence their current personalities.
This book was a good story, but not great writing.
From Joan Medlicott, the nationally bestselling author who created the wonderful world of Covington, comes a heartwarming story about three generations of women who find their way past old hurts and losses to understanding, forgiveness, and love.
Winifred Parker climbed her way out of poverty by marrying into one of Philadelphia's oldest, wealthiest families. Now seventy-two years old, she has always felt that her son married beneath him and she has had no contact with her daughter-in-law, Zoe, since her son was killed in Korea.
Zoe Parker lives alone on twenty-eight acres of rural Carolina land that she inherited from her parents. Determined to preserve her property when faced with the threat of foreclosure, Zoe, now in her fifties, has no choice but to turn to her wealthy, estranged mother-in-law.
Katie Parker is a young divorcée whose daughter recently passed away. When she returns home to Zoe's land to heal, she knows enough about her mother's history to be surprised to find her grandmother living there, too.
Though old grievances stand between the three women, new challenges and grave danger cause them to forge a new path together, and they soon find unexpected bonds forming along the way. Joan Medlicott has created an entirely new group of characters you'll want to spend time with in this warm, rich novel about family, friendship, and where the two meet.
Quick, satisfying read. Very, very enjoyable!
