#151: Silver Girl - Elin Hildebrand

Meredith Martin Delinn just lost everything: her friends, her homes, her social standing - because her husband Freddy cheated rich investors out of billions of dollars.
Desperate and facing homelessness, Meredith receives a call from her old best friend, Constance Flute. Connie's had recent worries of her own, and the two depart for a summer on Nantucket in an attempt to heal. But the island can't offer complete escape, and they're plagued by new and old troubles alike. When Connie's brother Toby - Meredith's high school boyfriend - arrives, Meredith must reconcile the differences between the life she is leading and the life she could have had.
Set against the backdrop of a Nantucket summer, Elin Hilderbrand delivers a suspenseful story of the power of friendship, the pull of love, and the beauty of forgiveness.

My Opinion:
I wish this had been a paperback or hardcover instead of an audiobook, as I feel I absorb more when I see the words.
With that said, the audio didn't deter me from loving it! I found myself stopping what I was doing to give the cd player my undivided attention. No other audiobook before this has had that effect on me.
I loved that Richard Castle was a character in the story too. In case you don't recognize the name, he is an author and also a character on tv in the self titled show, Castle. I couldn't help picture the actor that plays him when his character was mentioned.
I really like Meredith, she's a cool girl. I'd love to read more of Meredith and Connie as they were great characters and I felt like they were women that I already know. Very familiar personalities.
I also want to say I love where the title of the book comes from. Now you'll hate for this, but I refuse to say why, except you HAVE to red the book to find out! I don't want to spoil it.


4/5


Recommend?
Yes, but get a print copy.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline. Reviewy is a website that contains information on a number of different supplements that can be used to boost brain power and protect it from degradation.
