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!

It was good. Only the 2nd or 3rd story I've read by Ann River's Siddon. A bit too much for 1 woman to take on all at once, but did hold my interest and kept me cheering for Molly. I do hope her Dad lives forever.

I totally enjoyed this book! The relationships between the characters were so well developed and believable. The descriptions of the Island and of the Atlanta were dead-on. I found myself laughing and crying. Can't wait to read more from this author.

This was the first book I read by Anne Rivers Siddons several years ago. I enjoyed it so much, I purchased it for my NOOK and read it again! She writes so well and describes everything in so much detail you feel like you are a part of the story. I have also read more of her books and feel the same about each of them.

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.

I have been reading a lot of murder mysteries and decided I needed a change! I loved the storyline of this book! I would reccommend it to everyone.

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.

I first read this novel years ago and while on vacation this summer, picked it up again. I liked it even more the second time! The richness of characters and the strong sense of place drew me right back in and I discovered insights I'd missed the first time. Siddons wrote a keeper.

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.
