Gabby, Elly, Beth, Barbara Ann and Sable, are five women with distinct writing careers who form a close-nit writers group. The five women meet once a week at Gabby’s house. One day when they arrive early at Gabby’s place to throw her a surprise birthday party, they find her dead. The women are devastated and torn apart with grief. When a letter is left with Beth for the women they realize it is more than a bunch of words written on a piece of paper. That letter is actually the courage they need to move on and discover themselves and their full potential. Living at Gabby’s house for the summer gives them a new perspective to their lives. They discover more about themselves during their time spent with each other when they gather at The House on Olive Street.
Sharp, touching and sentimental, The House on Olive Street by Robyn Carr is a must-read!
