The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton
Frankie, Linda, Kath, Ally & Brett all live in the same Palo Alto neighborhood in the late 1960's and early 1970's. They meet weekly and discuss their writing attempts. The bigger story is their lives and the support they give each other. The story of women supporting each other has been done often and Ms. Clayton's tale is very compelling. What makes it even more interesting is the history that is woven into the book. Everything from man landing on the moon to women being allowed to run the
Boston and New York Marathon to the founding of Intel and those pesky computers.
One of my "chuckle moments" was when the whole group gathered at one home to watch the moon landing on the 'giant' 23-inch color TV!
Rating: 3 stars (PG-13 - some sex, but not too graphic)
