I received a copy of The Wednesday Daughters by Meg Waite Clayton in exchange for an honest review.
Hope, Julie and Anna are “The Wednesday Daughters”, all childhood friends and the children of “The Wednesday Sisters”. After Ally, Hope’s mom dies the Daughters return to the cottage that Hope used as a retreat while she was working on an autobiography of Beatrix Potter, which was never published. Hope finds some old notebooks from her mom, but they don’t make any sense and with the help of Julie and Anna they try to break the code in which it is written. Then comes an outpouring of troubles each girl has dealing with and together they try to find the answers. This book I have to say was not a light read, I had to be totally focused on the story or else it would be very confusing. A good read with they girls realizing that even though they were not blood that their connection ran way deeper and than some blood relations and their “family” and families were so important and were the ties that bound them together.
