Book 73- barefoot

Three women- two of them sisters who aren't very close, and a family friend- all come together to Nantucket for a summer. Each of these women have a secret.

This isn't a "chick lit" novel; Barefoot had more substance. Author Elin Hilderbrand writes with humor and substance while still addressing "women's" sort of topics like love, betrayal, child birth.

I don't want to give anything away by telling more (and I don't have a copy of the book in front of me to know what's on the blurb and what might be a spolier) so suffice it to say this was a quick and enjoyable read, without being too heavy or too stupid.

Light fare with a little kick. A good read. Makes me want to go to the beach and to fall in love.

I am jealous, the only books I have read since April are scholastic ones for my doctoral of Education degree. Prior to that I read over 110 books from August 2009 through April 201. I am looking forward to the semester break from teaching college and attending college and will be settlloing down to read some long awaited pleasurable books.

Thanks for stopping by!

Valrie- I love to read and last year I read 117 books so I'm really falling behind of my goal this year!
