The Wednesday Sisters
Reviewed by- linda (2009/09/06, 12:51 PM)
I found this book slightly hard to get into, initially it felt like it was going to lack depth and fall into the “too light” chick lit category. But it wasn’t long before I was glad I persevered. Not only was this book delightful to read, it was also a poignant, moving story that dealt foremost with the bonds of friendship, but on another deeper level the start of the women’s movement of the late 60’s when women first dared to think “equality”. This was also a time when the civil right movement was taking place and the plot realistically shows the impact of the accompanying shift in values within a family, a community and between close friends. The characters, their struggles and the portrayal of their day to day lives are all very real and believable. It’s sprinkled with humor but also evokes enough emotion to bring tears to your eyes at times. In short a nicely written light read with punch.Back.
