Editorial Reviews

Review

"I'm more than glad to give this book five stars all the way around for the lyrical writing, the beautiful characters, and all the joy that came from simply living alongside these people for a time. I could taste the salt on my lips from the beach of their youth. I could feel the pain of their losses and the joy of their gains. Every moment was another gift in this gem of a novel." ~Shandra, This Redhead LOVES Books Blog

"I really loved how the author portrayed the complicated progress from simple childhood friendships to friends with separate lives and relationships but still a close connection and love for each other." - Raising a Bookworm blog

"Circle in the sand practically screams quality from the first page...It is sensational...If you're looking for beauty, then this is it." ~Mia's Point of View

I would like to start by saying that I feel privileged to have gotten the opportunity to read this book. It's rare that a book perfectly encapsulates a life, much less five of them, and it's a precious, beautiful experience to feel as if one has taken a journey with both the author of a work as well as with their characters.

Circle in the Sand was very much a journey for me.

I entered into reading this book with no set expectations, only knowing the barest bit of the premise, and intending to leave an unbiased review based on that.

I have left this book feeling as if I have come to know every character involved in it as if they were my own friends, my own family, or a part of my own life.

This is the story of three women who shared a childhood friendship that has evolved into a lifelong love for one another. I got to see Jax -named for Jacqueline Onassis- be a wild, free spirit with boundless love for others find a way to fully love herself. I got to witness Sage -the "pretty" one who takes life too seriously- come to learn what it is that truly matters in life. I saw Emily -the devoted mother- come to grips with the fact that there is nothing wrong with asking for help and I saw her twin brother Ned realize that he's more than the tag-along to their little circle of women.

And Rose.

I got to see Rose -the woman who has reached the end of her life, Sage's grandmother, and someone who is intimately familiar with what it is to grow old- pass on the most important lessons she managed to learn in all her years to those that she loved. Rose, of all of them, touched me because I saw a lot of my grandmother, a lot of other grandmothers, in her.

I've read three of Lia Fairchild's other works, so I wasn't afraid to dive in and test the waters of this new book. This novel is heavy on characterization, but Fairchild is a master at developing phenomenal characters. One man and three women, best of friends since childhood, have reunited to tell their stories. Each takes a turn narrating, so I was able to get to know the characters inside and out. It's a story of drama, personal problems, love, friendship, regrets, forgiveness, restoration, romance, and even a little mystery. The characters are so different from each other that there's a little something for everyone in this book--even men like myself--and their lives are so unique that it's almost certain that every reader will make connections as he or she reads. I felt like I was their friend too, and as I finished the book, I felt a little disappointed that I had to move on with my life without them. I predict that others will feel the same.

This is my first book ever by Lia Fairchild but it won't be my last! ...I won ‘Circle in the Sand’ therefore I had a clean slate & am a very open-minded person, but this exceeded my expectations! ... In my own words, this is my honest review as an avid lover of fiction with contemporary romance and drama! ... Make sure you have time to read this coz you won’t want to put it down once you get started!

I would say if you like books by Luanne Rice, Nancy Thayer or Elin Hilderbrand (just to name a few) then you will love Lia Fairchild’s own style of writing... I love the way her characters develop throughout the story and were told by each one's perspective... 4 lifelong friends, only human with flaws yet so likable that you wish they were real and a part of your own circle of friends! ... I rarely cry when reading, like I do when watching a movie but this poignant, feel good story will tug at your emotions! ... Rich descriptions and a happy ending will leave you wanting more of this author’s books and hopefully a future story with these characters :) ... I promise, you won’t be sorry with this amazing 5 STAR MUST READ!!

I truly, truly loved this book. The book follows four friends each as an individual and as a whole, as they re-connect. All of the characters (Emily, Ned, Sage and Jax), are relatable, likable individuals who are forced to look inside themselves with doubts from the past or to what is in front of them, I really liked Ned's unique perspective in this story, his role to each woman without losing himself. The one character I felt really drawn to is Emily. Being a mom of two boys, I can see some of myself in her. Emily is not a bad mom, but her wanting to be the perfect mom, the protector, the nurturer, and of course the perfect spouse deemed by society, she struggles to find her own definition. Emily has to come to terms with her past that has weighed in on her present life. Defiantly one of my favorites, and I can't wait to read another work from Lia Fairchild.

A great book that follows a group of friends that met some twenty years ago. It covers the past and present and secrets that eventually come out in the process of telling this story. I usually read two or three books at a time but found myself coming back to this one.
This is definitely a book to add to your list of must reads...I recommend you put it at the top of the list!!
