About the Book
Now in paperback, Anne Rivers Siddons’s New York Times bestselling novel about four friends whose lives are forever changed by the events of one summer.
Every August, four women would gather together to spend a week at the beach, renting a new house each year. The ritual began in their twenties when their husbands were in medical school, and became a mainstay of every summer thereafter. The only criteria was oceanfront and isolation, their only desire was to strengthen far-flung friendships. They called themselves the Girls of August. But when one of the women dies tragically, the group slowly drifts apart and their vacations together are brought to a halt. Years later, a new marriage reunites them and they come together once again on a remote barrier island off the South Carolina coast. There, far from civilization, the women make startling discoveries that change them in ways they never expected.

I don’t read enough ARS. When I do I love her books and then I forget and move on to someone else. I should consider her one of my go-to summer authors since she usually gives us something great each year.
I haven’t read her work in a while. This sounds really good. Thanks for the giveaway!
