Anne Rivers Siddons has done it again! Her characters in Up Island are rich and multi-dimensional, and more importantly, believeable. Any middle aged woman who has given up hope while experiencing the misery involved in the break up of a long term relationship will absolutely love this book. In its pages the reader can laugh and cry, experience joy and pain, and begin to heal from the unfortunate turn of events in her life. It offers real hope of triumph over pain. Don't miss this one!

Not a New Book by Siddons!

Your advertising of "Up Island" by Anne Rivers Siddons leads one to believe this is a new book by her. Maybe it is a new release in paperback, but the original book was I believe released in the early 1990's. I know because I have already read this book by Siddons, as...
Your advertising of "Up Island" by Anne Rivers Siddons leads one to believe this is a new book by her. Maybe it is a new release in paperback, but the original book was I believe released in the early 1990's. I know because I have already read this book by Siddons, as I have all her other books. You need to distinguish between a re-release and a new book in your advertising.

    Slow to involve you but wraps around you like an old friend.

    Tell your family to get supper for themselves when you get toward the end because you're going to have difficulty doing anything else but read until you get to the last page...and then you will want to find someone else who's read it to discusss the book.

    Very Good Book

    This book was my first Anne Rivers Siddons and I enjoyed it alot. Very good in the beginning, which I like a story that draws you in, this one kind of gets boring in the middle, I stuck with it and was glad I did. Very good ending. Will definitely read more by this author.

    Great Story, Lacks Climax

    Anne Rivers Siddons is an outstanding author, and this story is no exception. However, unlike many of her other novels, Up Island lacks both a climax and joy. I found it a rather downbeat novel on the whole. But this book is still a must-read for Siddons fans.
