Review & GIVEAWAY! Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand (2 Winners)


Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand

Book Description: Meredith Martin Delinn just lost everything: her friends, her homes, her social standing - because her husband Freddy cheated rich investors out of billions of dollars.Desperate and facing homelessness, Meredith receives a call from her old best friend, Constance Flute. Connie's had recent worries of her own, and the two depart for a summer on Nantucket in an attempt to heal. But the island can't offer complete escape, and they're plagued by new and old troubles alike. When Connie's brother Toby - Meredith's high school boyfriend - arrives, Meredith must reconcile the differences between the life she is leading and the life she could have had. Set against the backdrop of a Nantucket summer, Elin Hilderbrand delivers a suspenseful story of the power of friendship, the pull of love, and the beauty of forgiveness.



About the Author: Elin Hilderbrand lives on Nantucket with her husband and their three young children. She grew up in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, and traveled extensively before settling on Nantucket, which has been the setting for her five previous novels. Hilderbrand is a graduate of Johns Hopkins University and the graduate fiction workshop at the University of Iowa.Here's What I Think: If you are looking for the perfect book to read while lazing about in your backyard this summer, this is it. Its the classic tale of one woman's life getting turned upside down in the blink of an eye. This book looks closely at the ideas of friendship, grief, loss, family dynamics, and trust. I have always enjoyed the imagery of Hilderbrand, and she delivers another great read in Silver Girl. Connie and Meredith are well thought out characters that you route for every step of the way.
