    Not up to Gaffney's usual standard . . .

    Having read several of Gaffney's previous efforts, it is difficult to believe she also wrote this. The characters are interesting and quirky, but not as likable as in her other novels. The plot is ho-hum with a few interesting twists. So overall, an ok read; but nothing special.

    A Disappointment...

    I loved The Saving Graces and couldn't wait until 'Circle of Three' was released. What a disappointment, the charcters are bland the story is convaluted...(recreating Noah's Ark, why was that thrown in there?). How could the same woman have written both books? 'Isabel' should be rolling over in her grave.

    Poignant family drama

    <P>Carrie instigates an argument while her husband is driving home from an outing when he suddenly keels over and dies from a heart attack. Carrie¿s guilt is so intense, she slides into a deep depression for the next four months, unable to eat or even dress until her mother Dana forces her into obtaining a job. Dana hopes that Carrie¿s new boss will prove to be a suitable spouse once her daughter comes out of mourning. <P>Carrie cares about no male except perhaps her first love Jessie, a person she fled when she decided to abandon her small hometown. Carrie¿s teenage daughter Ruth knows nothing about the shared past her mother and Jessie had. Instead she likes him, treating him like a friendly older brother and occasionally like a father. Dana never approved the ¿socially inferior¿ Jessie, but feels that when he thinks the time is right he will make his move. However, when Ruth catches Jessie and Carrie in a compromising position, she feels betrayed causing a crisis that forces the three generation of women to confront each other and themselves. <P>Patricia Gaffney follows up her last bestseller THE SAVING GRACES with another powerful drama that will appeal to her fans as well as that of Delinsky and Siddons. The poignant story line deals with problems on different levels as the three females bring differing perspectives to the table. This makes for an engaging tale that charms the audience as everyday people try to do their best to attain a happy life for themselves while hoping to bring contentment to their loved ones. CIRCLE OF THREE is family drama that is impossible to put down until the final page is read. <P>Harriet Klausner
