The Girls of August by Anne Rivers Siddons
I was looking for an interesting Playaway to listen to and this struck my fancy. I enjoyed listening to this story about four women who get together every August in South Carolina. The ladies have taken a break from their yearly vacation when one of the four, Melinda, dies in a tragic car crash. But when Melinda's husband, Ted, remarries a very young lady named Baby, the three find themselves gathering once again with the new addition of Baby. What follows is a touching and heartfelt story about the relationship between these women and how each one is affected by the other's life.
