Three Words of Advice
Last week I blew through Meg Waite Clayton's novel, The Wednesday Sisters.
I have only three words of advice for those who haven't read it - BUY THIS BOOK.
Ok, I'm lying.
Not about buying the book. About only saying three words.
As you may have noticed, I've become cynical when reading a new or new-to-me author. Actually I've become cynical about some of my old stand-by authors too.
A dwindling pile of books to read demanded I go to B&N, where I may have overlooked this treasure. But the book gods interceded, so an errand to Target (where I never buy books. Ever.) and a tight schedule had me wandering past the endcap where The Wednesday Sisters were hanging out, calling my name. How could I resist?
I'm not going to ruin it for you. Or even provide a synopsis.
What I will tell you is this - the woman standing in the corner with her back to you in the lobby of the Hilton, well, that was me.
I didn't want you, or anyone else, to see me sobbing and laughing at the same time. I'm pretty sure my nose was running, too. Sure, maybe I should've stopped reading and waited until I was alone. But... I couldn't put it down. Yes, it's that good.
Now why are you still online? Go buy this book. NOW.
