Book Review: The Wednesday Sisters

Yeah, it’s only the first week of Callapidderday’s Fall Reading Challenge and I’ve already read my first book!  That’s kind of my goal, to read a book a week, since most of my selections will be coming from the library.

51dLain0DlL__SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA115_ This was a good book.  The writing was easy and flowed well, the characters were real and believable, and the storyline, while a bit familiar, kept you wanting to read.  Basically it’s set in the late 60’s around 5 young mothers who meet by chance in a park.  They discover they all have a love for books and writing, and begin meeting weekly to write and discuss their writing.  Each mother has a story to follow of course, and we get to see how these very different women blossom in such a turbulent and changing time period.  I was born around the time this piece is set in, but the references were very familiar and written into the story in a believable manner.

I liked this book.  I liked the women and enjoyed seeing their lives unfold.  There were a few iffy words and references to “marital relations” but not enough to put me off…in other words, they weren’t gratuitous.  They fit in with the story.  There were a few times when parts of the plot unfolded in plain view of the reader, but somehow oblivious to the characters, that were a little over the top, but otherwise this is a well written book worth your time.  Btw, this is just a personal review of a book I checked out of the library.  Because I’m all about full disclosure.  ;)


  1. I read this last year and really enjoyed it. I will definitely read more of her books.

  2. I haven't read this book. I've been hearing about some of the new full disclosure laws. I try to make sure I always say I got a review copy, if I did now!

  3. I read this book quite awhile ago too and enjoyed it. It was a nice story. Way to go getting your first book read for the challenge!

  4. Sounds like a good book. I'll have to see if my library has it. Thanks for doing the review. It is so much nicer to find books that way.


Thanks for stopping by!
