Outer Banks | [Anne Rivers Siddons]

Outer Banks

"They are love, those rare early friendships." As she travels to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a reunion with three of her college chums, Kate Abrams ponders the past. Had she ever known anyone as intimately as these three? There's smart, tough Cecie; foolish, lonely Fig; and pert, wealthy Ginger, who married young Kate's great love. Kate wonders whether such sublime bonds, and such deep betrayals, can survive the years. She is, after all, no stranger to life's ironies.

Publisher's Summary

"They are love, those rare early friendships." As she travels to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a reunion with three of her college chums, Kate Abrams ponders the past. Had she ever known anyone as intimately as these three? There's smart, tough Cecie; foolish, lonely Fig; and pert, wealthy Ginger, who married young Kate's great love. Kate wonders whether such sublime bonds, and such deep betrayals, can survive the years. She is, after all, no stranger to life's ironies. Her father, a poor Southerner, filled her life with social illusions, and took his life in the process. Her husband sustained her through later deaths. And now an ongoing battle with cancer puts Kate's own life on the line.

Forced to face dark truths about her "golden" past, Kate discovers the meaning of life and the power of true friendship. Mystery, madness, revenge, and awakening await Kate Abrams on the Outer Banks.

    Story
    "Abridged but not bad ..."

    I was so excited to see this available that I didn't notice it was abridged. I was sad to learn how much was missing, but the story is still there. I loved the novel when I read it years ago and took a vacation there because of this very book.
    It's worth listening to if you buy if for under $5 like I did. Otherwise, go get the book at your library and read the whole thing!

    "Ramble Ramble Ramble"

    By the title and description it looked like a really good story. But the author just rambles and skips all over the place. The story is hard to follow and the characters are not very endearing. I could only take about 1 hour of it and just turned it off.
