    One need not already be a fan of The Wednesday Sisters to enjoy

    One need not already be a fan of The Wednesday Sisters to enjoy this new novel by Meg Clayton.  The Wednesday  Daughters
    is a book about friendships, well as the bond between a mother and daughter (even after the mother is dead.  And through it all is
    weaved a delightful tale of Beatrix Potter (a personal favorite of mine!)  I  loved the conversations between Ally Tantry and Potter,
    as well as the way Clayton's words carried me all the way to the English Lake District (a place I have never been, but now feel I know
    somewhat intimately).  Clayton truly explores the intricacies and complications of friendships and familial relationships.

    As good as Wednesday Sisters

    Didnt want the book to end. This is why I love reading....books that captivate you, take you away, yet speak to something inside of you.

    I enjoyed this novel immensely.  The setting is magical, as are the glimpses of Beatrix Potter herself (imagined 
    by Hope Tantry, the mother of this story's central character, in Hope's journals).  The story weaves delicious
    elements of family secrets into a daughter's search for her mother, and for her own truest self.  I'm moved by
    the generational aspect to this book, as it follows Clayton's earlier novel, The Wednesday Daughters, into our 
    contemporary world.  Daughters, I feel this book is saying, must make their way in the world, just as their
    mothers did -- through courage, honesty, and love.

    There are many facets to this little gem of a novel.  The Wednes

    There are many facets to this little gem of a novel.  The Wednesday Daughters are members of an extraordinary extended family, whose lives have been intricately interwoven.  Their gently recounted stories are told with tenderness and great insight.   




    The charm and rich literary history of the English Lake District enhances the narrative.  This is an exquisitely written, multi-layered story, replete with whimsical imaginary conversations with Beatrix Potter's ghost.  It’s a great read.
