Elegant Kate, walking a tightrope over an abyss of lies...sensitive, sensible, self-contained Cecie...Ginger, the heiress, sexy, vibrant, richer than sin...and poor, hopeless, brilliant Fig. They came together as sorority sisters on a Southern campus in the '60s. Four young women bound by rare, blinding early friendship, they spent two idyllic spring breaks at Nags Head, North Carolina, the isolated strip of barrier islands where grand old weather-beaten houses perch defiantly on the edge of a storm-tossed sea.

Now, 30 years later, they are coming back. They are coming back to recapture the exquisite magic of those early experience again the love, the enthusiasm, the passion, the pain, and the cruel betrayal that shaped the four young girls into women and set them all adrift on the Outer Banks.

loved this Book!!

I would put his up there with one of my favorite books ever! The characters are people that you would like to meet and be lifelong friends with.

Rather Depressing Tho Good Storyline

Would you try another book from Anne Rivers Siddons and/or C. J. Critt?

Maybe - I've read others and like them.

What other book might you compare Outer Banks to and why?

Don't know

What about C. J. Critt’s performance did you like?

I read Siddons

Do you think Outer Banks needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?


Any additional comments?

I've never read a book with "cry" "cried" "weep" "wept" so much in one book. The main character, a woman, cries constantly - when she's happy, when she's sad (a lot), when she's depressed (a lot). I kept reading to the end, hoping it would get more uplifting. Didn't. I've always liked Anne Rivers Siddons, but this one.....I don't know.

There is a major problem with the ending. I Replayed repeatedly to make certain I had not missed something.
