    Belva Plains Crossroads

    I just finished reading Belva Plains latest book and I cannot begin to tell you how disapointed I was. Every other book I have read in one MAYBE two settings this one took a week Every book that I have read before this one I have read at least twice. I can't help but think that something was wrong with the author perhaps she has been ill. It just ok and always her books are wonderful

    This contemporary comparative character study is fun to follow

    In Wrightstown, New England, twice widowed Mrs. Cassandra Wright (Ms. Is too trendy though using her maiden name is not) is the CEO of Wright Glassworks. A family tragedy forces Cassie to take in her relative, one years old Gwen. She raises Gwen as if she is her own daughter and the child thrives in the affluence of her surroundings.<BR/><BR/>Jewel Fairchild works as a receptionist at the Glassworks with ambition to marry wealth. Whereas the adult Gwen is at best plain looking; Jewel is vivaciously beautiful. Envious of Gwen, Jewel achieves her goal by marrying affluent businessman Jeff while Gwen settles on steady middle class worker Stan while coveting Jeff. When Stan uncovers questionable practices at his place of work owned by Jeff, they and their wives will be forced to confront their inner demons.<BR/><BR/>This contemporary comparative character study is fun to follow as readers will contrast Jewel with Gwen, and Stan with Jeff. Although Jewel is more of a caricature of the scheming gold-digger, Gwen a bit too introverted to carry the story line and the husbands two and half dimensional, the dynamic CROSSROADS relationships between the lead quartet make for an interesting drama for fans of Belva Plain.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Another Great Book

    Thanks, once again, for a wonderful book. It was a page turner, I couldn't put it down. I have read every Belva Plain book since Evergreen. I will continue to do so. The only problem I have is that they aren't coming fast enough.

    IT WAS WORTH WAITING FOR

    I have been waiting for Belva Plain to come out with a new book for years and for some unknown reason, this was delayed in publication and a new title was given. I loved the characters and the twists and turns throughout the book. If you are a Belva Plain reader, you will enjoy this one.

    Comfortable Reading!

    Crossroads is a comfortable read with a predictable storyline. Skillfully the writer has woven a tale of jealousy among "friends." This is a great novel for vacation reading.

    Crossroads

    Belva Plain, Anne Perry, Francine Rivers -- my favorite female authors! I eagerly anticipate their new books. Sadly, this book is not up to Belva Plain's usual superb writing. Her characters are predictible, and pretty boring and silly. I am almost through with the book, and I am hoping for a great ending! Not looking good! Come back, Belva!!!
