(126)Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand

Silver Girl

Publication Date: June21, 2011
416 Pages

It is not unusual for authors to get their ideas from the stories that play out in the national media. "Ripped from the headlines" so to speak. This time it was Elin Hilderbrand's turn to pull her plot from the headlines.

Meredith Delinn is the wife of Freddy Delinn. Freddy has just been sentenced to 150 years in prison for running the biggest ponzi scheme the world has ever seen. Meredith herself is also under investigation, the feds think she was in on it and she has become the most hated woman in America. She only has one friend left, her childhood friend, Connie Flute. Even though their relationship is strained, Connie helps Meredith escape the city and hides in her in Nantucket for the summer while the feds continue to investigate Meredith. Will Meredith ever be able to put her life back together? Will she be able to prove her innocence? Will her relationship with Connie heal or are some wounds to deep to heal?

Elin Hilderbrand is one of those authors that I look forward to every summer. Her tales of Nantucket are the stuff of my dreams. She makes Nantucket out to be this mythical, magical place where women go to fall in love, find themselves, enjoy the summer or all of the above. Even though I think the whole Bernie Madoff twist has been over done, I really liked Silver Girl. The relationship between Meredith and Connie was an interesting one. I enjoyed watching them come full circle and get back to where they once were. Overall, another wonderful read by Elin Hilderbrand!


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
