Silver Girl is a fictional account that is ripped from the headlines. Meredith is the wife of Freddy Delinn, who is in jail for life for cheating investors out of billions of dollars. People think that Meredith knew what Freddy was up to, and so she is scorned and rejected by everyone she knows. To make matters worse, she and her son (with whom she is forbidden to have contact) are under investigation by the FBI.

Meredith has not seen or talked to her old friend Connie in years due to a falling out. Out of Meredith's desperation, she contacts Connie, who reluctantly agrees to give her refuge at her summer house in Nantucket. Even though Meredith is out of Manhattan, she still is in danger from people who want revenge for her husband's dealings. Meredith never truly feels safe, even as she begins to let some people back into her life, including her ex-lover, Connie's brother, Toby. But Silver Girl is not only the story of Meredith trying to get her life back, but also that of Connie, who is still grieving for her deceased husband and trying desperately to get back in touch with her estranged daughter.

What a beautiful, beautiful book. From the gorgeous cover, to the picturesque settings throughout, the reader will become enchanted with Meredith's story. Read this book slowly, and treasure every word. One realizes from reading it that life is not about what car you drive or how big your house is, but about who you can count on when things unexpectedly go awry.
