The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D.: A Novel | [Nichole Bernier]

The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D.: A Novel

Summer vacation on the island was supposed to be a restorative time for Kate, who'd lost her close friend Elizabeth in a sudden accident. But when she inherits a trunk of Elizabeth's journals, they reveal a woman far different than the cheerful wife and mother Kate had known. The complicated portrait of Elizabeth--her upbringing, her marriage, and journey to motherhood--makes Kate question not just their friendship, but her most fundamental beliefs about loyalty and deception at a time when she is uncertain in her own marriage.

Publisher's Summary

Summer vacation on the island was supposed to be a restorative time for Kate, who'd lost her close friend Elizabeth in a sudden accident. But when she inherits a trunk of Elizabeth's journals, they reveal a woman far different than the cheerful wife and mother Kate had known. The complicated portrait of Elizabeth--her upbringing, her marriage, and journey to motherhood--makes Kate question not just their friendship, but her most fundamental beliefs about loyalty and deception at a time when she is uncertain in her own marriage. When an unfamiliar man's name appears in the pages, Kate realizes the extent of what she didn't know about her friend--including where she was really going when she died. Set in the anxious post-September 11th summer of 2002, this story of two women--their friendship, their marriages, private ambitions, and fears--considers the aspects of ourselves we show and those we conceal, and the repercussions of our choices.

    Lucy Clarkes - The Sea Sisters ~They both have journals and deal with the issue of losing someone close to them.

    I loved Angles Brazil's ability to bring out the emotion in the character.

    Story
    "Boring. Nothing "Wowed" Me....."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I wouldnt recommend this book to a friend. this book was boring. There was no climax or anything exciting. It just felt like I was reading the lives of 2 everyday couples dealing with their everyday "issues"..... Nothing Wowed me..... Waste of my time.


    What could Nichole Bernier have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Give some sort of explosive ending or even something exciting in the middle of the book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the Narrator read very slowly (and i had the speed turned up to normal). she also tried WAY too hard to pronounce evey syllable of every word..... a little over the top.


    Could you see The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D. being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.

    Story
    "Perceptive Reflections on Parenthood, Friendships"

    Interesting characters and premise. Thoughtful observations of relationships, what we know and don't know, transitions. Built around unknown of what one person's journals reveal.
