Sister Circle Jun 15, 2006
Okay, I bought this book because it was on sale and its premise reminded me of Penelope Stokes books. And when I started it, I was not sure I would finish it. But then I started to care about the characters and I do want to know what happens to them. I cared enough to buy the rest of the series lol although I plan to donate the set to my church library.
Pleasant, but often unbelievable-- Dec 31, 2005
THE SISTER CIRCLE is predictable, but still a pleasant read. The premise has a new widow, Evelyn Peerbaugh taking borders into her home.
Evelyn is amazed that within a short time after putting up her "Rooms 4 Rent" sign, women are coming to inquire about her boarding house. The women that she rents to are all very different and from the very beginning there are personality clashes among them. Evelyn is a good person, but finds it hard to be decisive and make house rules. Mae is an old hippy who lives in her own world. Tessa is sanctimonious and preachy. Audra tries so hard to make a good life for herself and her daughter that she is unbending. Finally, her daughter Summer is a sweet child doing her best to be the perfect daughter that her mother requires. Several other women are also brought into the mix. Two of the characters are professed Christians and many of the problems that the ladies face are solved with words from the Bible. I thought that the character descriptions of the women were well done. My biggest problem with the story was the interaction between the characters. They were often too blunt with one another and seemed to feel that they had the right to offer advice or ask questions that were much too personal. Those parts of the story were very unbelievable and rather annoying.
Great Sense of Friendship Dec 26, 2005
When I first discovered The Sister Circle series at my local library, I knew I would enjoy it. The book joins a group of women all fighting an inner war into a beautiful home and results in lifelong friendships and relationships being formed. We get more than just a glimpse into each character's life and are lucky enough to be able to learn about each personality, quirk, and hope these women have. At times humorous, sad, and even somewhat frustrating (especially with Tessa)the word of God is always prevelent and always inspiring. A great read!
Awesome series - I cannot put them down! Dec 6, 2005
I love this series - I've read 3 and have the 4th one on my nightstand. I should say I am devouring these books; I love each of the characters, their quirks, and their struggles to come to faith. I think it has made me question my own faith and hopeful made it stronger. Very well written....I am recommending this series to all of my friends.
awesome book Mar 6, 2005
This is one of the best fiction books I have ever read. I have read all three of the series, the fourth is coming out in April. The first one is the best in my opinion. I love the honesty of the characters. Mae's and Tessa's quirkiness is a bit annoying, but hilarious. It is very interesting to see how 5 females of varying personalities learn to get along in a boardinghouse without going crazy. I do think occationally they do get into each other's business to much and demand to know everything so they don't break the "circle'. It kinda reminds me of a sorority- a bit creepy! That is the only part I sort of disliked. Eveyone is entitled to a bit of privacy. I love how they all change through God's grace and their desire to connect with each other is amazing. Since reading the book, I have had many daydreams about how fun it would be to live in a boarding house with kind women. If I start a book club at my church someday like I hope to, this will be the first book we read. I loaned it to some of my female relatives, and they loved it too. This is a terrific book to share with your female loved ones. Anyone 18 to 80 would enjoy this fine piece of work. Nancy Moser and Vonnette Bright are soooooo incredibly talented. I don't want this series to ever end. I hope they continue writing books together, even if they discontinue writing more sister circle ones.
