THE 2ND BOOK OF HERS I'VE READ AND AGAIN THE NARRATIVE IS LOVELY…I WISH THE ENDING MATCHES THE WHOLE OF THE BOOK - BUT DO READ IT AS IT IS A SENSITIVE INSIGHT INTO COMPLEX PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS. I HAVE JUST ORDERED THE WHOLE OF HER WRITING AS I RATE HER STYLE SO MUCH. HAPPY READING

A terrific holiday read, the more interesting because it reflects attitudes among a certain type of woman in the sixties and seventies in the US rather than here At first the storyline seems predictable but there are some interesting twists. A woman's book I would say.

An updating of The Group, set in the 50s. Three great female protagonists, lives believe ably inter mingle over the decades. Read it and enjoy.

Don't expect the smutty gossip of today, this is a book of yesteryear. Not a word is wasted, a quiet, descriptive book that takes it's time. I doubt this author will ever disappoint, I hope not, I've bought eight more of hers, sitting, waiting to be read.

My all time favourite book is Still Missing by Beth Gutcheon and although I found Gossip mildly interesting it does not anywhere near compete with Still Missing

An interesting walk through the lives and loves of Lovinia's.
A well written book which captures the complexities of women's relationships with each!

In mitigation this was a book group read, else I would never have picked it up. Nothing interesting to recommend it at all. A banal and tedious read.

This mostly reminded me of "The Group" a book that was recommended by Amazon to me - I loved that book about a group of 5 women growing up in New York. The Gossip focuses on 3 characters and their families over the years all narrated by the clothes shop owner, Lovalie. It starts slowly (I'm never interested in schooling adventures) but as the characters get older and they have families, the book suddenly comes alive. You find yourself realising that not everyone is as nice as you realise and not everyone is as Lovalie describes. She is a fair narrator and you become sympathetic to her causes.

I loved the descriptions of the different factions of New York society and the feeling that you were able to observe everyone. I loved this book - if you enjoy reading Candace Bushnell or Edith Wharton, then this is a good read for you.
