My style has changed slightly, as the world has grown faster, but my subject, family life, remains as mysterious and fascinating to me now as it was in these early books: falling in love, raising children, friendships and betrayals and forgiveness. I hope you enjoy these early novels and discover some new friends there.

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

This book, "Three Women at the Water's Edge", is her unsurpassed master piece. 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. 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

She was thinking of the little bags of surprises she had given to her children that morning, so that in their eagerness to look at their loot they wouldn’t cry to see their mother leave.

The children loved harmonicas and played them ceaselessly when they had them; Daisy usually threw them away as soon as one entered the house, because the noise was wildly unnerving even to the most doting of mothers.

Thayer selects a river, a lake, and an ocean beside which to locate her characters; however, I was disappointed in that she did not deliberately bring the water into the solutions and future for these ladies. This is a beautiful book. The women are so real and their interpersonal relationship so common, that it speaks to the reader.

I really liked this book. Nancy Thayer is one of my favorite authors. While the plot is very interesting, it is not heavy. Her style of writing makes it easy to follow and to become totally enraptured. The three characters she portrays are totally different in their personalities and in their lives. She pictures the career-oriented woman, the home body, and the adventurer in most positive circumstances. I love the use of the water which is one of my favorite symbols. Like Hemingway, I see it as a character addition. Thayer selects a river, a lake, and an ocean beside which to locate her characters; however, I was disappointed in that she did not deliberately bring the water into the solutions and future for these ladies. This is a beautiful book. The women are so real and their interpersonal relationship so common, that it speaks to the reader. One problem: the book is so well-done, that I could not bear to put it down and wound up reading until almost dawn! Thayer is that good. I highly recommend this one.

This is a good book. You will love it if you are the mother of small children, a single mom, or an old mom who just wants to live her own life awhile without her grown children's theatrics, for we all reach a point after raising children, being a wife, mother, sister, when we want peace and just a time to breathe and find out if we are still us. I had difficulty in the beginning jumping from sister one to sister two, but this is definitely worth reading if only to remind ourselves not to take our bumps in the road so seriously, life does go on, often with great improvement over the old.

I have read Thayer's Nantucket books and enjoyed them...the perfect beach read. This book is the re-issue of a work originally published in 1981 although it reads more like a book written in the late '60s early '70s. The issues were ones that I remember my mother's generation struggling with so perhaps not as compelling to younger readers. Additionally the book could use some editing...it was too long. As an example of women's issue in the 1970's or for those wishing to follow the author's development as a writer the book is fine. Those looking for a light contemporary read might want to pass.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book about a mother and her two daughters trying to find their way through life's ups and downs. The characters were real and easy to identify with. The descriptions were vivid, especially the descriptions of the three different bodies of water in the setting of the book. I have never read a more accurate description of childbirth! The women are struggling with relationships with men and each other, but they are primarily searching for their own truths, hopes, and needs. It is gratifying to experience their individual journeys toward independent and self-fulfillment.

I actually read this novel a number of years ago and loved it so when I saw it for Kindle I had to order it and was a gain quite pleased with this story of a mother and two daughters awakening to who they really are. I love each of their stories and how they grew with each passing year.

I loved this book, the quick snappy dialogue, the fast pace, I had to force myself to put it down. I really related to Margaret, but I am not as brave as she is. I was sorry that it ended. I am hoping that these characters are revived in another book.

I found this book a little boring so unlike Nancy Thayer's other books I have read. It is just my opinion...too much detail in the story. It will not stop me from reading her other books. Not 1 of my favorite books...sorry to say.
Such extreme detail into the thoughts and actions of 3 women at crossroads of change. I kept saying I am not Reading any more and then I just had to pick it up again. It is unnerving somehow to be in the heads of these three women. Yet their stories are so much the stories of today and the struggles so everyday within a family. It is slow going but I think you too will want to finish it.
