If you like Kristin Hannah....

In the tradition of Kristin Hannah, from bestselling author Meg Waite Clayton comes The Wednesday Daughters, an enthralling new novel of mothers, daughters, and the secrets and dreams passed down through generations.  It is evening when Hope arrives at the cottage in England’s pastoral Lake District where her mother, Ally, spent the last years of her life. Ally—one of a close-knit group of women who called themselves the Wednesday Sisters—had used the cottage as a retreat while she worked on her unpublished biography of Beatrix Potter, yet Hope knows little about her mother’s time there. Traveling with Hope are friends Anna and Julie, first introduced as little girls in The Wednesday Sisters, now grown women grappling with issues of a different era. They’ve come to help Hope sort through her mother’s personal effects, yet what they find is a tangled family history—one steeped in Lake District lore.  Hope finds a stack of Ally’s notebooks tucked away in a  drawer, all written in code. As she, Julie, and Anna try to decipher Ally’s writings, they are forced to confront their own personal struggles. And as the real reason for Ally’s stay in England comes to light, Hope, Julie, and Anna  reach a new understanding about the enduring bonds of family, the unwavering strength of love, and the inescapable pull of the past.
