An oldie but wonderful goodie!,
This review is from: Colony (Mass Market Paperback)
Colony was written by Anne Rivers Siddons sometime ago, but I only just read it recently. And now that I have, I imagine that this title will always remain one of my very favorite books from this author.
The reader of this book is treated to 70 odd years in the life of the main character Maude Chambliss as she spends the season at a small summer colony in Maine. You come to know her life and its joys as well as its tragedies. You also learn about her life, not only with her husband and domineering mother-in-law, but with her children and other islanders.
And when you close the last page of this book you will sigh, wish it could have lasted longer and think about the characters and plots as I did.
