The Girls of AugustRies The ritual began when they were in their twenties and their husbands were in medical school and became a mainstay of every summer thereafter Their only criteria was oceanfront and isolation their only desire to strengthen their far flung friendships They called themselves the Girls of August But when one of the Girls dies tra. I am usually a great fan of Anne Rivers Siddons' books The Girls of August however was a big disappointment I thought the writing style was simplistic the characters underdeveloped and the story line weak I never felt like I really knew any of the characters very well and what I little I did learn about them made them appear petulant and childish Their treatment of the much younger newcomer to the group named appropriately Baby bordered on bullying Maddie was concerned that she had never been able to conceive a child Rachel has breast cancer and Barbara is divorcing her husband who cheated on her with a younger woman Did we not just encounter three stereotypical women's issues in one fell swoop Of course Maddie learns on their vacation that she is at long last pregnant How much intriguing it would have been to delve deeper into the fear isolation and heartbreak each of these women were facing Maddie's pregnancy seemed like a cop out I would have preferred if Siddons had given Maddie the strength to make her life full and rewarding without her having a child All in all this book was a light fluffy read without much substance

Siddons employs all of the hackneyed developments that make for a good beach read affairs cancer unexpected pregnancy clueless trophy wife all capped by the reuisite storm Unfortunately it's all been done before and while I have loved Siddons' earlier books I was ultimately frustrated and annoyed by these characters and the cliched subplots not to mention some of the trite writing and phrases If you've never read Siddons before earlier books such as COLONY OUTER BANKS and the creepy HOUSE NEXT DOOR are much better bets or for other good novels that take place at a beach try Elin Hilderbrand Nancy Thayer or Dorothea Benton Frank
