Jodi Kirkwood Kirkwood 从 巴西圣埃斯皮里图州独立城
我的最爱之一上周，这是我最喜欢的琳达·霍华德（Linda Howard）的书。 Cry No More将本书排在第二位，但我仍然爱Wolf和Mary。玛丽是一位刚到小学就读的小学教师。一个认真的小镇。她有一个学生，麦肯齐男孩，还没上过学。看来他已经退学了。玛丽决定不要让任何学生留在手表上，她将与乔·麦肯齐的父亲沃尔夫交谈。沃尔夫和乔住在山上，正在下雪，玛丽在温暖的气候下没有合适的衣服，而且她的车子很烂。尽管如此，她仍需要让学生回到学校，所以她离开山上……并立即陷入困境。玛丽是王牌。她为这么小的女人失误感到很苦恼。尽管那女人是烈性人，但那不是你通常在书中看到的那种。玛丽只是一个相信人和教育的人，她为自己的信仰而奋斗。我知道有些读者不喜欢她的性格，但我认为她是一个从脾气暴躁，生气勃勃的女性角色转变的好机会。所以，是的，玛丽获得了我的投票。狼。我爱狼。他非常幻灭，但我觉得他有理由成为。监狱不好玩，由于偏执而被错误地监禁。好吧，这简直糟透了，我也会感到愤怒和不信任。沃尔夫确实是一位守旧派浪漫史英雄。我喜欢他坚忍的阿尔法男性气质。我可以看到有些人不喜欢他的性格，但我喜欢他的坚韧和幻灭与玛丽庇护的玫瑰色玻璃形成鲜明对比的方式。这本书是一个甜蜜的爱情故事，上面放着一个令人敬畏的十几岁的儿子，以增添一些家庭风味。我喜欢一个很好的家庭故事，所以这本书使它翻了两千倍。爱，爱，爱。
太好了 大声笑出声的小鸡，但有骨气。 谢谢，谢谢，星期一读书俱乐部！
I really loved this book. It's honest and comes from a place of panic and guilt - which I can understand but also the main character is a tad crazy which makes you pity her, but not to the point of disliking her. She's flawed, hurt, partly responsible etc. I couldn't put the book down and I was sad when it ended. Even the redundant use of 'Dear Osama" didn't bother me.
The Wednesday Sisters follows five women from the time they meet in 1967 until 1974. These women are young wives and mothers, rather well-to-do, living in suburban Palo Alto, California. Their `club' is focused on becoming writers, and each of them contributes both writing and criticism in order to help their sisters grow as writers. They are also the best of friends, sharing triumphs and tribulations and learning about themselves in the process. I initially assumed this book would be rather `familiar' (that's Frankie-speak for `trite'), but was glad to be wrong. Most of what I've read about this time has focused on the subversive and radical elements of the late `60's, early `70's culture in America, so it was very new and fresh to be given an insight into the lives of those who'd accepted the status quo and were being forced, by experiences in their own lives, to change their long-held views. Being only 27 and never experiencing that era myself, I was continually struck by how recently our culture has shifted from marginalizing women to embracing them (for the most part.) It is rarely that I come across a novel in which the characters seem so real, as they do in The Wednesday Sisters. We are not given their stories in part, but feel we have become a part of the whole, and the narrator, Frankie, has a very engaging "voice" (as is also stated in one of her sisters' critiques of her writing.) I would recommend this book to anyone who reads general fiction, which is a very wide section of our population. I expect The Wednesday Sisters to become a bigger best seller than The Mrs. America's, one of the sisters' novels. (Which I also would really like to read, by the way.)
