Book Spotlight Giveaway! The Wednesday Daughters by Meg Waite Clayton


I have sooooo many books! I have a ton of print books and probably even more e-books. The Book Spotlight Giveaway feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the many books I have. There are a lot of different reasons that I might be letting some of my books go, the biggest one is that when we moved 2 years ago I discovered how many books I really do have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy them.

I have two copies of this book! And you could win one of them. I read the first book of this series, The Wednesday Sisters for one of my book groups and we loved it. I have been meaning to read this one, I just haven't gotten to it yet. And then I ended up with 2 copies. It's amazing what one discovers when books come out of storage boxes. LOL

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!

The Wednesday Daughters

The Wednesday Daughters by Meg Waite Clayton
Series: Wednesday #2
Hardcover, 304 pages
Published July 16th 2013 by Ballantine Books

Meg Waite Clayton, nationally bestselling author of The Wednesday Sisters, returns with a compassionate, wise, and enthralling new novel of mothers and daughters, best friends who become family, and secrets and dreams passed down through the generations.

It is early evening when Hope Tantry arrives at the small cottage in England’s pastoral Lake District where her mother, Ally, spent the last years of her life. Ally—one of a close-knit group of women who called themselves “The Wednesday Sisters”—had used the cottage as a writer’s retreat while she worked on her unpublished biography of Beatrix Potter, yet Hope knows nearly nothing about her mother’s time there. Traveling with Hope are friends Julie and Anna Page, two other daughters of “The Wednesday Sisters,” who offer to help Hope sort through her mother’s personal effects. Yet what Hope finds will reveal a tangled family history—one steeped in Lake District lore.

Tucked away in a hidden drawer, Hope finds a stack of Ally’s old notebooks, all written in a mysterious code. As she, Julie, and Anna Page try to decipher Ally’s writings—the reason for their encryption, their possible connection to the Potter manuscript—they are forced to confront their own personal struggles: Hope’s doubts about her marriage, Julie’s grief over losing her twin sister, Anna Page’s fear of commitment in relationships. And as the real reason for Ally’s stay in England comes to light, Hope, Julie, and Anna Page reach a new understanding about the enduring bonds of family, the unwavering strength of love, and the inescapable pull of the past.

    1. Thanks Judy! I have had my eyes opened to genres that I normally would not have read in the past since I started this blog. We just found out over the weekend that we have our 8th grandbaby on the way. Aren't they fun? Congrats on all of yours.
