The House on Olive Street ~ by Robyn Carr, 1999, fiction
The loss of their close friend draws four women together. And a summer spent sorting through personal effects offers the perfect challenge — and the perfect escape.I came back from housesitting with another borrowed book — this one. Have you read it?
Sable — her bestselling novels have made her a star, but the woman who has everything, in fact, has nothing but a past she is desperate to hide.In the house on Olive Street, away from their troubles, the four women discover something marvelous: themselves. And along the way they realize a dream. For, in telling the story of a remarkable woman, their own lives begin to change.
Elly — the intellectual who has hidden herself within the walls of academia, afraid to admit she is tired of being alone.
Barbara Ann — the talent behind twenty-six romance novels wakes up one day to discover she's lost control of her career, her sanity and her family.
Beth — her popular mysteries have become the only way she can fight against the secret tyranny of an abusive husband.
Then Saturday, my friend Donna and I went out to eat, but first we stopped by Books-A-Million to pick up a couple of books she ordered. Of course, I picked up a book from the sale table, adding to my overflowing TBR stacks.
Married, pregnant, then quickly widowed, Gruadh, the last female descendent of Scotland's most royal line, is forced to wed her husband's murderer, the warlord Macbeth. Determined to protect her interests and those of her infant son, she vows to preserve her family's legacy at any cost.The novel starts with two things I love -- a map and a genealogy. It's a map of Celtic Scotland, and the Genealogy of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. I had never heard of this one, but it looks interesting and will represent Scotland in my Book Around the World challenge.
