Chemo treatment #2 reading. I really like this book so far, especially the three different timelines.

eanderson I managed to miss that you were going through chemo! This time last year I was getting ready for my 4th chemo cycle. You look like you are tolerating it very well! Thoughts and prayers with you! If you need any encouragement or someone to talk to you are welcome to email me at eanderson511@aol.com I‘m currently still going through treatment but it‘s MVASI or Avastin and a medication. Take care! 1mo
megnews @CoffeeNBooks I haven‘t been on regularly lately and didn‘t know you were going thru this. Prayers for speedy and complete recovery. 💞 1mo

Finished my first Beatriz Williams book! I always forget how much I actually like historical fiction. I stayed up late last night to finish because I only had like 20 pages left and needed to see how the story ended.

I guessed the “secret” pretty early one. I don‘t know how much of a secret it was actually supposed to be though. I‘ll definitely read her again though.

Thanks for the book @BibliOHIOphile ! #LitsyLove

marleed I‘ve now read 3 or 4 of her books and none in of publishing sequence. It took 3 books for me to realize the Schuyler family is a theme in her books and I kind of want an ancestry chart for her books to see how one is influenced by another! 14mo
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Love her!! 14mo
Laughterhp @marleed Haha oh really? I did see on goodreads that there was a “Schuyler‘s sisters 2”. I‘ll have to look up her other books. I‘m going to start The Golden Hour soon. I guess I need a HF fix. 14mo

My August #bookspin #bookspinbingo. This book has a little bit of everything. It is historical fiction that takes place in 3 different decades, and has a decades old mystery involved. It is a great summer read, and I throughly enjoyed it.

This is a quick historical fiction (set in 1930, 1951 and 1969) read with some romance and a mystery. Also my #doublespin for August.

I enjoyed this more than I thought! It was a lazy, summer romance mixed with a bit of mystery. Some parts dragged a bit, but it was an enjoyable read for a hot Saturday afternoon. And I finally got my first #bookspinbingo which was one of my goals for #jubilantjuly !!

😳 Imagine my surprise when I opened my copy of Beatriz Williams‘ The Summer Wives to find that not only was it an Advance Reader‘s Edition but also a signed copy!!

Nicely intersectionally (told during 1930, 1931, 1951 and 1969) written novel about a young girl who visits Winthrop Island for the summer due to her mother‘s impending marriage, meets a boy and falls in love. Tragedy occurs, she leaves and he‘s arrested. Drama ensues

This book sat atop by TBR for months last summer but I never seemed to grab it. Finally, with thanks to #BookSpinBonanza, its a done deal. ...It was slow going at first but then the whole summer wives thing took shape and it was fun to read the crooked path to its end. ...And then I googled Fishers Island NY. My Google history because of books would surely baffle investigators!

CoffeeAndABook 😂😂 Love that comment about your Google search history!!! So true! 🤓 2y
emmaturi I read this too this month. Also liked it. I would read more of her books too! 2y
marleed @emmaturi I have 2 other books of hers unread on my shelves so hopefully I add them to my monthly Bookspin lists soon. I love it when I see someone has read an earlier published book about the same time as me! 2y

Finished my first book for May. This was my first book from Beatriz Williams, but it certainly won‘t be my last. This was a very enjoyable story, with different timeframes, and focuses on the decisions the characters make. There was a very good twist right at the end of the story. Recommended.

vlwelser I haven't read this one yet (but I think it's on my bookshelf). I really enjoyed some of her others. 2y

It may just be me, but I have lived in three different locations in England and don‘t think I have ever really heard the term smash used. The regular word I would use and hear people using is an accident.

julesG Seems strange to me, too. I can't remember anyone using the term "smash" for a car accident either. Smash an egg though. Or smash a window/door. 2y
TrishB Never heard it used. 2y

If a privileged white community that summers on the coast while the less privileged brown community earns their keep year-round is your kind of story, read this. Also, really long. I found myself repeatedly going back to re-read a passage because I zoned out.

I circled back to this book. I first tried to read it a couple of years ago but then my world fell apart. Strange how I am able to finish it during a pandemic.

Beatriz really makes you work for a payoff. Her books start off soooooo slow. Always finish with a bang and tug on the ol‘heart strings.

My first Beatriz Williams book! And I have to say, she‘s a good writer and has well developed storylines. Her historical accuracy is interesting and it doesn‘t dominate the storyline. This book reminds me of The Boston Girl, Susanna Kearsley, Sarah Addison Allen, Maeve Binchey, and Kate Morton.

Summer is for reading Summer Wives! Williams draws you into the story so gently, bewitchingly, and completely that time stops until it‘s hours later—you pop back into reality and realize you‘ve finished it in 1 sitting

This is classified as a historical fiction in most places but I would not call it that. To me it's more of a literary fiction family drama with a little bit of romance and mystery thrown in. It was entertaining to listen to. Note: language, explicit sexual scene, and violence
