    I really enjoyed this book, until, literally, the very last page I thought the ending was crap, but the rest of it was great and interesting Basically, and I mean really basically, it s about three old women who had a big scary secret, and also the story of a young woman who had a horrible childhood and acted like it as an adult The whole story is about the big secret the Three Margaret s know, and the families who had to do with the secret, which also tells the entire life stories of everyon I really enjoyed this book, until, literally, the very last page I thought the ending was crap, but the rest of it was great and interesting Basically, and I mean really basically, it s about three old women who had a big scary secret, and also the story of a young woman who had a horrible childhood and acted like it as an adult The whole story is about the big secret the Three Margaret s know, and the families who had to do with the secret, which also tells the entire life stories of everyone in the book, and how it resulted in the young woman s childhood being horrible The secret eventually comes out, the entire story is told, everyone becomes aware of all the situations involved, and it was climatic and enjoyable, but the reaction of the secret being outted was less than enjoyable, and should have beendramatic to counter the drama of the rest of the story EDIT It s over a year later I decided to give it another star because I actually find myself thinking about this book still, all this time later Not about the drama or the secret, but the story that is in between the lines, the story of solid friendship and companionship, and love How well you get to know other people in your life and can expect their reactions and emotions to even simple words or stories or people I think this novel definitely showed human interaction in a way that is very real and honest For that, over a year later, it gains a star

    As trite as it sounds, this book merits negative stars I stumbled upon a copy of this book at Salvation Army, and being a fan of the sub genre that is Southern Chick Lit., I forked over my dollar and brought it home in my stack So started the beginning of the end.Unfortunately, this book forces me to focus not on the novel, as I would like, but on the author, whose underhanded distaste of the South and its people is apparent When someone literally knows nothing about the author not even her As trite as it sounds, this book merits negative stars I stumbled upon a copy of this book at Salvation Army, and being a fan of the sub genre that is Southern Chick Lit., I forked over my dollar and brought it home in my stack So started the beginning of the end.Unfortunately, this book forces me to focus not on the novel, as I would like, but on the author, whose underhanded distaste of the South and its people is apparent When someone literally knows nothing about the author not even her name and, after reading about twenty to sixty pages, can wager a bet, with near 100% certainty, that not only is the author not from the South, but she has barely, if ever, lived there, then something is very, very wrong with the writing and with a publishing world that would allow this to be released Flashback to me on my daily commute, reading These are the thoughts that are traipsing through my head Cliche Handsome Yankee from New York Cliche Cliche Not possible Where are the accents Why is there a sense that most of these characters hate the South Cliche Cliche Random character Then I stop reading and to the dismay of my fellow commuters, mumble that I have been duped into buying a fake I flip to the back of the book, and there is the interloper the author Who is from New York Educated at Yale Drama School Not from the South Joke is on me, Ballantine Books The joke is on me

    In the reading guide from this book, which I always read because, yes, I am a nerd, it asks if you think this book would make a good movie I seriously want to know why it hasn t been done yet This, as well as Shaffer s The Ladies of Garrison County, would make great movies I love these characters.

    This is not an easy book to read sporadically The storyline is hard to follow at times and the author continuously jumps from past to present and back again Not thrilled with the ending as I wishedfor Laurel.

    I picked up this book at Goodwill and it sounded like a good read I have never read this author before I had a hard time keeping interested in the book It was a little confusing going back and forth between present day and the past, and it was hard remembering some of the characters and their history I m sorry but I agree with someone else that said the ending was crap I thought the ending was completely uneventful and confusing and not exciting at all I m kind of disappointed.

    i m halfway through this book and i m hooked, i didn t want to go to work today because i wanted to finish it i think i ll be finishing this tonight before i go to bed the interweaving stories from different characters and from past and present is a nice way of telling the story.
