Reviews

"The present and the past intertwine beautifully and inevitably in Meg Waite Clayton's winning follow-up to The Wednesday Sisters. From the beguiling Lake District setting, to a completely charming (and spot-on) portrayal of Beatrix Potter, to the way the Wednesday daughters strive to unpuzzle both their own choices and their mothers' legacies, every layer of the novel delivers. The Wednesday Daughters is utterly rich and satisfying."--Paula McLain, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Wife "A captivating novel about mothers and daughters, lifelong friendships, love affairs, betrayals, and redemption. Clayton transports us to the English Lake District, an area rich in literary history and romance, where her characters' secrets unfold in ways both satisfying and surprising."--J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of Commencement, Maine, and The Engagements "Beautiful storytelling . . . [Meg Waite Clayton] delves deep into the human heart . . . and [will] keep you hanging on until the very last page is turned."--RT Book Reviews "The Wednesday Daughters is a bewitching escape of a novel. The characters became my beloved companions. I wanted it never to end."--Elin Hilderbrand, author of Beautiful Day "Heartwarming . . . filled with memorable characters."--Bookreporter "Fans of The Wednesday Sisters will relish this new work, which intersperses captivating journal entries within its chapters and easily deserves to stand on its own. Given Clayton's vivid imagery and rich historical detail, readers will almost be able to see Beatrix and her husband rowing along the tarn at sunset."--Publishers Weekly "Charming, thoughtful and atmospheric in that way only Meg Waite Clayton can write, The Wednesday Daughters is a jewel of a book. It's told with a deep and lovely understanding of generational ties, and it celebrates what ultimately matters most. Fans of The Wednesday Sisters are going to fall in love all over again."--Sarah Addison Allen, New York Times bestselling author of The Peach Keeper "With delicate, precise strokes, Meg Waite Clayton illustrates and explores the intricate effect of the secrets we keep, even from those we love, in The Wednesday Daughters. This is the perfect novel for every mother, daughter, and sister to read, savor, and discuss over a pot of tea."--Melanie Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of The Aviator's Wife Selected as Recommended Summer Reading by Chicago Tribune - Fort Worth Star-Telegram - San Jose Mercury News From the Hardcover edition.
