    Three Women At The Water's Edge By Nancy Thayer


    This is a terrific book and one that will never disappear from my shelves I love to re read it from time to time It s beautifully written, not as insubstantial and easily forgotten as so much modern women s fiction The detail of the environment and inner lives of the characters is rich, sensual and very engaging The three stories are beautifully balanced first serious love, motherhood and empty nest we meet these women as they are poised at the edge of those major transitions and it s a wonderfu [...]

    I read this book as a young working mother I wanted to list it here because I remember that I found truths in it at the time about being a woman, mother, wife, sister I ve tried to order it lately on , but was put on hold forever I d like to read it again and see if I find it as enlightening after 25 some odd years.

    This book follows two sisters and their mom as they traverse three very different lives, each with joys and crises They were believable and sympathetic women, but sometimes the writing left me thinking OK, I get it, move on Overall engaging, but not compelling.

    A good summer read Thayer weaves a story around the complicated relationships of family and how a choice by one affects the rest of them.

    This book read differently than one of Thayer s recent books, Moon Shell Beach I did enjoy it, but it was very interesting again that one of the main characters, Daisy, who is pregnant with her 3rd child, regularly drinks wine Anyway, you have a mother, Margaret, and her two daughters, Daisy and Dale Margaret decides she doesn t want to be married any and just takes off, loses weight, cuts and dyes her hair, and begins living for herself Her ex, Harry, is beside himself Meanwhile, Daisy, with t [...]

    I met the author in person on Nantucket in October 1988 She is not only a very capable author of women s novels, she is also a very lovely person in real life.This book, Three Women at the Water s Edge , is her unsurpassed master piece Only Nell , Family Secrets and Belonging come close to this book.I read all her novels until the first Hot Flash Club has been published I own all Thayer books in hardcover and like all of them, especially the ones set on Nantucket Island.When I read Three Women f [...]

    Nancy Thayer has an immense ability for capturing and conveying the complexity of women Wonderful story From back cover From the surf of Maine to lakeshore Milwaukee to Canada s Pacific mists, each of the Wallace women, a mother and her two daughters, is looking across her treasured home waters to the horizons of change.Margaret has gone from a matronly doctor s wife who carried everyone s burdens to a svelte single, her hard won freedom invaded by a compassion she dare not feel.Her daughter Dai [...]

    I first read this novel years ago after it was recommended by an editor friend of mine I have since re read it, and found it every bit as wonderful and satisfying as on the first read I could relate to the characters, especially Margaret and Daisy, who resonated with me The handling of each woman s storyline is as deft as it is subtle We come to know them as real people, loveable and deserving of love despite their flaws Anyone who loves a good novel notice I use the word novel and not women s f [...]

    I have waited a while before posting my review on this book, mostly because I couldn t decide how many stars to give it I enjoyed the book in most parts, and, pardon my french, really pissed off at others Therefore, the 3 stars.Margaret was hard to swallow I have a hard time believing that someone can live a certain life for 25 YEARS, and then decide that it was totally out of character for her.I did like Daisy, and wished she fought harder to make her marriage work I felt bad for the children N [...]

    A mother and 2 daughters struggling at the crossroads of their lives to find their way.It was well and compassionately written, showing the complexities and the ever changing stages of our lives I sympathised with Margaret and understood how she felt after a life time of putting others first I have seen my daughter grapple with a similar situation as Daisy s and the difficulties of the single parent with small children Dale on the other hand has deep felt fears to face and overcome about love an [...]

    This book is the epitome of what my husband would call a chick lit book Nothing much happens that doesn t occur within the mind heart of the three women characters The descriptive passages are long and detailed, creating memories and scenarios lush with detail that were spot on There are many interesting and ponderous observations about love and motherhood and marriage that require some slow and thoughtful reading A reader looking for plot would be advised to read elsewhere.

    I first read this book when I was the age of the youngest daughter and loved it I then read it when I was a young mother and could relate to the oldest daughter I reread it years later and was able to relate to the mother, who I thought was so old when I first read it I think it a sign of a good book that when you reread it you can relate to different characters I wish you could get it on kindle.

    Seeing that my library has all of Nancy Thayer s earlier books available for Kindle download, I thought I would start with Three Women at the Water s Edge Well, I did finish it, but it was quite the chore There was a really good story in there however, it kept getting ploughed under by words, words, and words.Opening lines Daisy read what her mother, Margaret Wallace, had written Dearest Daisy, I am happier than I have ever been in my life.

    Well, it is a book about three women s life, a mother and two daughters The mother divorced after long years of marriage and falling in love again, a daughter, pregnant with the third chid is divorced and another daughter falling in serious love finally How can a family be messed up lol Nancy Thayer slowly shows their struggles and how they help each other She shows how vulnerable every woman is in this society.

    Could have been much betterI did not care at all for this author s style of writing The characters were so over dramatic and their thoughts so odd, they seemed like psychos They certainly did think or act not like normal people you or I would know and like Very strange way of thinking and writing.

    I love Nancy Thayers current books can t get enuough This was an old one I Somehow plowed through and finished it and it was with a big sigh of relief when it ended I liked the women and the story line but if most of the endless, teidius, unnessary description of everything was eliminated the book could have easily been a third shorter I ll stick with Her new books.

    i am so glad the publisher released ms thayers books on e books i am throughly enjoying themis was about a mother and 2 daughters who each experience dramatic life changes and how each copes and grows

    Did not particularly care for the mom s character in this book, but I did appreciate the daughters plights Mom eventually came around, but mostly I enjoy how Thayer imparts her words of wisdom on her readers.

    This author lives on and writes stories set in Nantucket I love every one of her books that I have read, but this one was also unique to her others Plus, I m always a sucker when the setting is a main character Barbara

    This was the 3rd Nancy Thayer book that I have readI was really disappointed in itThere was not enough interaction between the 3 charactersIt spent too much time on the thoughts of each one instead of intertwining the stories of each together.

    One of my all time favorite books Written in 1981, it is her first one A different style, and beautifully written, and one feels like they are one of the 3 characters You can identify with each one, depending on the stage of your life Great reading Loved it.

    A story of a divorced woman, her pregnant daughter who has 2 kids and is getting a divorce and the younger sister on the verge of getting married They are trying to figure out what they want from life and if marriage has to be a part of it It was interesting, yet rather depressing at times.

    This was in my recommended list and I have no idea why The book is pretty redundant when it switches between characters telling of the same story I was not impressed with the book at all.

    Excellent book a mother and her 2 daughters try to make new lives for themselves The mother seems better at it, but the daughters keep trying One of them is a bit of a whiner, but she gets better toward the end Keeps you engaged all the way through.

    Cathy Ryan
    The story was great but she gummed it up with all this irrelevant stupid stuff She s a great writer.just needs to write

    Good ChikLitI actually really liked this book,but think I should be reading better books A mom and 2 daughters and how their lives change Fun reading

    Great story of Mother and two daughters each wth totally different lives but so connected

    I couldn t get thru the first 75 pages which are a depressing recital of Daisy s marriage.

    Laurie Magee
    yuck, so surprised I didn t like it at all and returned it after 50 pages in.

    Diane Mckinney
    The characters were interesting and the story line was also good There seemed to be a lot of repetition of thoughts, that took away from the smooth flow of the story.
