    My third Evan Hunter in as many weeks Buddwing, Strangers When We Meet and by far the best Even though I enjoyed the others this one engaged me muchand I found it compulsively readable It s not exactly great literature but it s an absorbing saga of a group of people whose lives interweave in various ways from the 1940s to the 1960s The title is misleading as it s noabout mothers and daughters than it is about fathers and daughters, or husbands and wives, or friends and lovers, b My third Evan Hunter in as many weeks Buddwing, Strangers When We Meet and by far the best Even though I enjoyed the others this one engaged me muchand I found it compulsively readable It s not exactly great literature but it s an absorbing saga of a group of people whose lives interweave in various ways from the 1940s to the 1960s The title is misleading as it s noabout mothers and daughters than it is about fathers and daughters, or husbands and wives, or friends and lovers, but it does focus on two women in particular Amanda, the daughter of a small town minister who hopes for a career in music, and the wilder Gillian, whom she meets at college and who want to be an actress The novel gives a wide ranging and panoramic portrait of mid century America, tracking the societal changes, the changing s and attitudes, the changing aspirations of both women and men, and if a stranger came to town and wanted to know what life was like in this period, this book would supply all the necessary information There s a particularly moving episode relating to Amanda s sister, who has a breakdown and through her we track psychiatric treatment and all the new drugs coming into use Through Gillian s experiences we learn about the day to day drudgery of trying to make it as an actress And so on All of life is here and it makes for a fascinating read even if there s a bit of melodrama and soap opera thrown into the mix at times A really enjoyable novel, well written and well paced, and even if definitely of its time, still applicable to our contemporary world, such are its many eternal themes

    Evan Hunter was a professional writer, and I say that with the utmost respect He wrote for a living For money Using several pseudonyms he wrote over a hundred novels from mainstream pop to police procedural to porn His prose is truly the work of a pro easily readable, no showing off I love this guy Mothers and Daughters is a mainstream pop novel about four women I m the wrong gender to judge if he got the emotional issues right, but I detected no false notes And the great thing about Eva Evan Hunter was a professional writer, and I say that with the utmost respect He wrote for a living For money Using several pseudonyms he wrote over a hundred novels from mainstream pop to police procedural to porn His prose is truly the work of a pro easily readable, no showing off I love this guy Mothers and Daughters is a mainstream pop novel about four women I m the wrong gender to judge if he got the emotional issues right, but I detected no false notes And the great thing about Evan Hunter is that you detect nothing about the writing, it s invisible The story flows like a river One example Here s a scene we ve all encountered in some story or another This is Evan Hunter s rendition The street lamps were on, the department store windows were lighted, they beckoned like potbellied stoves The taxicabs rushed along the street Amanda and Morton stood on the street corner with the wind lashing at them They seemed like lovers To the passer by, to the casual passer by intent on the cracks in the pavement, they looked like secret lovers, and perhaps they were Do you think we can have lunch sometime Morton asked hesitantly.She searched his face, open and sweet, he has such a sweet face, she thought She reached up and touched his mouth with one ungloved hand I don t think so, Morton, she said.He smiled He nodded He seemed pleased somehow Goodbye, Amanda, he said He took her hand He would have been content with a handshake She leaned close to him suddenly and kissed him on the cheek, and then awkwardly said, I ve got lipstick on you, and rubbed at the stain with her gloved hand, and then squeezed his hand and said, Goodbye, Morton, and turned away from him quickly and walked across the avenue against a light, and knew that he watched her until she was out of sight, and told herself the tears in her eyes were caused by the wind.Like when great actors perform a familiar love scene, this one s a clich and yet with Hunter s prose the scene is fresh and bright and clear Critics and academics don t appreciate how much skill is required, how great the artistic instinct, to render something so simple, to give it resonance, to make you feel you were right there on the street corner watching Potbellied stoves for beckoning warmth Taxicabs rushing, wind lashing for the sensual intensity of the moment To the passer by, to the casual passer by intent on the cracks in the pavement, great repetition, the rhythm and the subtlety of the moment to an indifferent city Touching his face with one ungloved hand, the intimacy Rubbing the lipstick stain with her gloved hand, the distance, and also the willingness to sacrifice the clean glove to fix his appearance The lipstick itself, unintended consequence of her feelings Every detail perfectly chosen Like a great drummer working behind a band from the back of the stage laying a beat so flawless you aren t even aware It seems so simple It isn t

    I feel like I should apologize for just giving this book 3 stars when I see the average is 5 But I just didn t get it I thought it could have ended about a hundred pages before it did I enjoyed reading about Amanda, Gillian, Julia and even young Kate but I didn t become immersed in their stories or lives They weren t memorable enough to me I m sure others will rate it five stars and be able to write raving reviews I m glad I read it but am equally glad I can now move on to the next book an I feel like I should apologize for just giving this book 3 stars when I see the average is 5 But I just didn t get it I thought it could have ended about a hundred pages before it did I enjoyed reading about Amanda, Gillian, Julia and even young Kate but I didn t become immersed in their stories or lives They weren t memorable enough to me I m sure others will rate it five stars and be able to write raving reviews I m glad I read it but am equally glad I can now move on to the next book and the next adventure Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to read an advance copy for my honest review

    Love it There was something about this book that I just loved Aside from the fact that it is beautifully written I feel in love and befriended its characters It made me think about my own life and decisions or lack of decision I strongly recommend it.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book It was engaging enough to make it my choice over a Netflix show I thought it was going to be about the relationships between mothers and daughters, and to an extent it was But I found itto be about the choices these particular women made and how their lives unfolded Evan Hunter I found quite insightful.

    Hmm did this hold my attention because I was captive to it on a long flight, and then didn t want to put it down unfinished Probably, although it did hold my attention Not one to write home about.

    The first book I read by Evan Hunter, I found the story was interesting but the story could have been cut in half.
