Publisher's Summary

Meredith Martin Delinn just lost everything: her friends, her homes, her social standing - because her husband Freddy cheated rich investors out of billions of dollars.

Desperate and facing homelessness, Meredith receives a call from her old best friend, Constance Flute. Connie's had recent worries of her own, and the two depart for a summer on Nantucket in an attempt to heal. But the island can't offer complete escape, and they're plagued by new and old troubles alike. When Connie's brother Toby - Meredith's high-school boyfriend - arrives, Meredith must reconcile the differences between the life she is leading and the life she could have had.

Set against the backdrop of a Nantucket summer, Elin Hilderbrand delivers a suspenseful story of the power of friendship, the pull of love, and the beauty of forgiveness.

    "Great summer entertainment!"

    This book sounded a little bit like a real story that happened several years ago, however it was still fun and entertaining.

    "Inspirational story of starting over"

    A good story of a woman's rise from the ashes! The story did start out slow and Meredith was hard to feel pity for as such an elitist in her former life with Freddy. By the end you find yourself rooting for her, a little late though. I would have liked to see a bit less victim and more courage. The narration was good but I did keep picking up a Canadian or Minnesota accent that didn't fit in? Still a feel good story.

    "Didn't want it to end"

    I haven't read a book by Elin Hilderbrand in a few years and I forgot how much I enjoy her. This book was a nice, easy listen and kept me interested until the very end. The two narrators for Connie and Meredith's characters did a great job bringing them to life.

    "Love betrayed friendship support honesty"

    Such a lovely and heartwarming story that has all the adjectives listed above. Emotions run deep as a REAL friend emerges during a true time of need. Many great friendships rekindled and strong new ones made.

    "Super LOVED this book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Oh yes!! An easy enjoyable read with mystery, love, challenged relationships, danger and more; one of her best books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The entire story line and how it was presented made me want to do a complete read!


    What about Janet Metzger and Marianne Fraulo ’s performance did you like?

    It was excellent!! Made me fall into the book and again feel a part of it!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Intriguing a must see!!


    Any additional comments?

    Elin Hilderbrand never disappoints me in any of her books. This has an intriguing mystery with Meredith and her husband a billionaire who finds himself in jail for 150 years. What happens to Meredith and her two boys? Meredith asks her a strangled but long time friend Connie if she can spend the summer with her on Nantucket. She accepts but what did Connie open herself up to; is it safe to have Meredith with her under the fact Meredith is under scrutiny of stealing also?

    This is a great summer read filled with adventure, a broken relationships, lost husband and a strangled daughter along with new love. What happens when Meredith sees her long ago love Toby?

    I loved this book; I could have read all night through. Easy read!!!

    "Hated the narrators!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I had to stop listening! I could NOT listen to the narrators any more! I may buy the book to see what happens...


    Would you ever listen to anything by Elin Hilderbrand again?

    Yes, with different narrators.


    What didn’t you like about Janet Metzger and Marianne Fraulo ’s performance?

    Too slow. Did not fit the characters.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    N/a

    Story
    "Silver Girl is a Great Find"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this novel. It is a story about all the different types of love you have in your life (romantic, friendship, family) and all the ups and downs that come with it. To me, it really delved deep into the characters’ emotions. And, I thought the ending was exactly what it should be—happy without being terribly unrealistic. If you’re looking for something a little bit more meaningful than your average romance novel, this may be the audiobook you’re looking for.
    The narration wasn’t the best I’ve ever heard, but I thought it was still pretty good.

    "The ending made me cry...loved it!"
    What made the experience of listening to Silver Girl the most enjoyable?

    The readers were excellent.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Meredith....watching her character grow over the sequence of events and her ability to accept what life threw at her with grace.


    Have you listened to any of Janet Metzger and Marianne Fraulo ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    To be honest, I don't know.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Bring a hankie!

    "Really enoyed this book"

    This book was my first audible listen and I really enjoyed it. I am a fan of Elin Hilderbrand and this book was not disappointing in the least. Taken out of recent headlines, the story presents from the point of view, not of the villian, but of Meredith, the spouse, and her childhood friend, now estranged, whom she calls on for help. This friend, Connie, is battling her own demons of grief and estrangement. The story switches back and forth between the two main characters. My only (small) disappointment was that it was occasionally difficult to differentiate which character was speaking becuase the narrators sounded very similar. Otherwise, this was a very good book.
