A story of true friendship, the love and devotion these women, the three Margaret's loved and shared a friendship we all wish we had in our lifetime. They were Southern to bone and each had their own unique personality. And through the many years of friendship they shared a secret and the secret had to eventually come out. I was delightfully surprised at the ending of this book.

I have read the first 4 books of Louise Shaffer and Highly recommend all of them.

The writing in this book reminds me of Fannie Flagg's style. The story is simple but probable. The characters are very real people and there is no pretense about them. I have lost interest in reading books where the characters are authors and they read Proust, I don't even know who that is but its phony. The characters in this book and also the companion book to this are not pretentious but also not stupid and "bumpkinish". There is not one particular character this is about but rather five characters and a family. I couldn't put it down and I would highly recommend it. It is not necessarily a feel good story but when I was done reading both books I was very glad to read it.

I, too, stumbled upon this book and I'm happy that I did. The story was so captivating and the references to southern culture & places so well thought out. I couldn't wait to get to the end just to see how it turned out but when I did I wished that it had gone on more, as I met some new friends in this book. It was great!

Yes, I literally stumbled on to this book. Saw it on my library shelves, knew nothing about it,but it seemed to call to me to read it. And what a good read it is! This may be the author's first book, but it is not her first writing. (Check out her rsume.) These three women, elderly as I am, made me want to join them on the porch and let me into their lives. Well, perhaps not into some of what they had done in the past, but that is a decision, to judge or not judge, to be made by the reader. As a member of two book discussion groups, I see this book as one to include on the reading list. It is writing that takes you along, doesn't let you go, and keeps you wondering about the what and how. Were they wrong? What would the reader do? Finally, alas, the books ends and we have to say goodbye to the three Margarets. I didn't want to. I want to join them on that porch.

Louise Shaffer welcomes you into the lives of The Three Miss Margarets like a trusted friend. She will share all their secrets with you (none of which I would dare give away here), including the big, dark secret the three share. In creating these artistically rendered portraits, she also creates a beautiful landscape of a Southern town through the decades. Like a great work of art, you will have a hard time tearing your eyes away from these pages.
