The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton is a dynamic story about friendship and family. Frankie and her husband leave their Chicago life behind and move to California. New friendships blossom as she starts taking her children to the park, and before long the Wednesday Sisters Writing Society has formed. All of the women love literature and it just seemed natural for them to start writing. Of course, life often interrupts the Writing Society.
I really liked this book. I thought that Waite Clayton’s characters were excellent. They were easy to relate to and I was immediately drawn into their lives. Some of the women were quirky and they were all incredibly likable. I also liked that each one was very different from the others and yet they all meshed perfectly. Waite Clayton captured the sixties perfectly; it was fascinating to read about the political turmoil and how the characters responded to it. I have already started The Wednesday Daughters. I am excited to catch-up with the next generation.
Meg Waite Clayton will be joining us on Saturday July 27th for a book signing from 1:30-3:00 PM. Be sure to stop in the store to meet Meg Waite Clayton and get her latest novel autographed.
