Friday Finds hosted by Should Be Reading asks us to share what great books we heard about or discovered in the past week.
My pick this week is Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares releasing on June 14/11. I’ve read all the Sisterhood books and loved them so I’m really looking forward to revisiting the girls ten years later. Here’s a description of the book from Fantastic Fiction…
Return to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants . . . ten years later
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Ann Brashares comes the welcome return of the characters whose friendship became a touchstone for a generation. Now Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget have grown up, starting their lives on their own. And though the jeans they shared are long gone, the sisterhood is everlasting.
Despite having jobs and men that they love, each knows that something is missing: the closeness that once sustained them. Carmen is a successful actress in New York, engaged to be married, but misses her friends. Lena finds solace in her art, teaching in Rhode Island, but still thinks of Kostos and the road she didn’t take. Bridget lives with her longtime boyfriend, Eric, in San Francisco, and though a part of her wants to settle down, a bigger part can’t seem to shed her old restlessness.
Then Tibby reaches out to bridge the distance, sending the others plane tickets for a reunion that they all breathlessly await. And indeed, it will change their lives forever – but in ways that none of them could ever have expected.
As moving and life-changing as an encounter with long-lost best friends, Sisterhood Everlasting is a powerful story about growing up, losing your way, and finding the courage to create a new one.
It sounds fantastic! For me, reading a series from the beginning makes this book a little like a visit with friends and I’m looking forward to it. How about you – did you find anything good this wee that you’d love to read? Share in the comments or leave me a link to your post. Have a great day everyone!
