The Girls from the Five Great Valleys: Nancy Pearl's Book Lust

Determined to climb the social ladder in Missoula, Montana, Hilary knows appearances are crucial to getting ahead - but she’s in for a rude awakening. With a rough home life, Doll seeks every chance she can to escape and hang out with one of the local bad boys, but her need to be noticed may land her in serious trouble. Janet hasn’t inherited the smarts of her doctor father, but she’s content to let life lead her rather than grab the steering wheel. Kathy’s the smartest of the group, but her know-it-all attitude can be a real turnoff.

Publisher's Summary

Five girls. Five dreams. Five destinies.

Determined to climb the social ladder in Missoula, Montana, Hilary knows appearances are crucial to getting ahead - but she’s in for a rude awakening. With a rough home life, Doll seeks every chance she can to escape and hang out with one of the local bad boys, but her need to be noticed may land her in serious trouble. Janet hasn’t inherited the smarts of her doctor father, but she’s content to let life lead her rather than grab the steering wheel. Kathy’s the smartest of the group, but her know-it-all attitude can be a real turnoff. Amelia has her mother’s drop-dead gorgeous looks and blue-blood Montana roots, but with a handicapped sister and an absent father, her world is waiting to shatter.

As the leader of the group, Hilary doesn’t make any decisions without carefully calculating the potential outcome. She’s chosen the others to be her friends in order to help her achieve her goals, but each of these young women is about to discover there’s little they can control when it comes to what fate has in store.

    "Confusing!"
    What would have made The Girls from the Five Great Valleys better?

    The story line was so confusing, I could not keep track of what was going on. I really wish they would have gone into more detail about each girl so that you could "get to know them each" better and understand there home lives. It was straight up a mess of a story line.


    How could the performance have been better?

    All the mens voices sounded pretty creepy and the same. The girls voices were a little to fake.


    Any additional comments?

    I was really looking forward to listen to a book about Montana, being born and raised in Montana I was really hoping to connect with the story a bit more and it was a complete let down. I would not listen to this again or recommend it to anyone else.
