Mia, Laney, Betts and Ginger, best friends since law school, have reunited for a long weekend as Betts waits for Senate confirmation of her appointment to the Supreme Court. Nicknamed 'the Ms. Bradwells' during their first class at law school in 1979, the four have supported one another through life's challenges: marriages and divorces, births and deaths, career setbacks and triumphs large and small. But when the Senate hearings uncover a deeply buried skeleton in the friends' collective closet, the Ms. Bradwells retreat to a summer house on the Chesapeake Bay, where they find themselves reliving a much darker period in their past - one that stirs up secrets they've kept for, and from, one another, and could change their lives forever.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cristina Fahrbach-connors | 2/20/2014

    " Great story of friendship and its nuances, secrets and dynamics. As an attorney, I appreciated the female attorney characters, who were well developed. Loved how it explored womens' rights and self perceptions. A page turner that kept you guessing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shailey | 2/12/2014

    " the story was interesting, and as a lawyer, I liked the book. I found the stories/voices to be a little confusing, and blending. It was hard to remember who was telling what chapter, because in some respects, they all sounded the same... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Casey | 2/9/2014

    " Enjoyed this one quite a bit. Tackles some weighty women's issues and written with an intellectual slant. Plus, the book was formed around a mystery, which was fun and kept me engaged. It took me a little while to get to know the characters, though, and there was some hokeyness at the end...but overall, a very good read. I plan to read more from this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen Sussman | 2/3/2014

    " This novel is intelligent and engaging. I'm so impressed by the way Meg Waite Clayton takes us deep into the lives of these fascinating characters. What a wonderful way to spend some time with smart women and to learn about their struggles to make strong careers and lives in a changing world. There's mystery here too, which pulls us along, toward a strong ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 1/21/2014

    " really enjoyed this. the author gets female friends and loyalty. made me miss my own college friends. will look for her other books "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheena | 1/11/2014

    " Had a hard time getting into this one. I got into it more towards the middle, but just wasn't feeling this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie | 1/5/2014

    " Quick, fun read with some good reminders of important life truisms but I thought the voices between the four Bradwells did not distinguish themselves enough. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sydney Davis | 12/2/2013

    " Well written, but like "The Wednesday Sisters" I just couldn't get into this book. I didn't finish it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tammy O | 7/26/2013

    " The story line with the four friends sounded interesting, but the last thing I want to read right now is a book about liberal, political women in office. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lee Anne | 3/22/2013

    " Confusing, hard to follow, and not gripping enough to make it worth the effort. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 2/21/2013

    " Definitely pulled you into the story "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Solomong | 8/30/2012

    " I was eagerly anticipating reading this book since I met the author while traveling. The early part of the book is very slow and did not really grab me. I'm close to the end now and it's gotten somewhat better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcia A | 8/24/2012

    " Not as good as The Wednesday Sisters, and in fact a little boring to read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tracey O'rourke | 8/17/2012

    " I dragged myself through this book. The characters weren't particularly sympathetic and the book telegraphed the ending. I just kept reading to make sure that I had guessed correctly about the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon Baas | 7/30/2012

    " I found this to be a good book. It is about Betts, a lawyer that has been nominated for the supreme court. It chronicles something in her past that may derail the nomination and what happened in the past and present. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 8/15/2011

    " Another good read by the author of The Wednesday Sisters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 6/8/2011

    " This book started off strong and ended strong...however, the middle...just dragged on a bit too long for me. It was a worthy read though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 5/15/2011

    " A story of the power of friendships since law school have reunited for a long weekend as Betts awaits confirmation of her appointment to the Supreme Court. But a long buried skeleton causes them to review their lives. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristin | 5/12/2011

    " I just could not get into this book. I may try again another time. I was really looking forward to it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lee Anne | 5/10/2011

    " Confusing, hard to follow, and not gripping enough to make it worth the effort. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 5/2/2011

    " deep and a little depressing good story well written "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jody | 5/2/2011

    " Just not my type. Got through chapter one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 4/28/2011

    " i din't really like the first book i read of hers. why am i reading another? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brianne | 4/21/2011

    " A "smarter" chick lit. It covers all the classic topics - friendship, loyalty, mother/daughter relationships, with a serious story - but the main characters happen to be very intelligent and the book is written with "smarter" language and references. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sydney | 4/19/2011

    " Well written, but like "The Wednesday Sisters" I just couldn't get into this book. I didn't finish it. "
