“Silver Girl” by Elin Hilderbrand Book Review + E-vent

Silver Girl

If you’re looking for a great summer book, look no further. “Silver Girl” by Elin Hilderbrand is the perfect fit. The book is about 2 middle age women who are starting over with their lives. They’ve both been through some huge chances recently. One is grieving the loss of her husband, the other is in the midst of a huge scandal that is threatening to destroy her life. But the friendship they’ve had since childhood brings them together again. In each other they find a familiarity and openness that gets them through one of the hardest summers ever.

I have read Hilderbrand’s “Castaways” and loved that so much last summer. The newest Silver Girl gets just as much praise from me. I couldn’t put the book down once I started it. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters are very relatable as they are going through their life struggles. And I think that’s what makes Hilderbrand’s books great to read. You feel like you are part of the story and quickly care about the well-being of everyone involved.

There is an awesome E-vent to go along with this new book Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand. The live event with Elin is being hosted by BookTrib. BookTrib will get the party started on the homepage at 3 p.m. ET/12 p.m. PT. Elin will begin answering YOUR questions LIVE! At the end of the party, we will announce the fifteen lucky attendees who will win an exclusive Silver Girl tote bag courtesy of The Elegant Setting along with an autographed copy of the book.

To join the chat, BookTrib members can simply log in and start asking questions on the homepage. If you’d like to sign up for BookTrib, click the “First Visit? Sign up!” button on the top right. Party go-ers can also sign in to the party with a Chat Roll account, a Facebook account, or as a guest.

I’m going to try my hardest to participate in the E-vent tomorrow with BookTrib. I’m really looking forward to it. (I have to get my car in for service a little before that, so I’m hoping they’ll be finished in time for me. We’ll see.) I hope that you can join us. There are great prizes being given away too.

If you haven’t picked up Silver Girl yet, I really encourage you to do so. I think you’ll enjoy it. The book is available for purchase in bookstores and online.
