In Accord by Kristin Chambers

Monday, April 21, 2014

It's October in Buffalo as four long-time friends, The In Accord Book Club, gather around a fireplace while a fierce windstorm amasses strength outside. They are deeply disappointed with the unfaithful characters and lackluster resolution of the novel they've met to discuss. When they agree to each write a richer, more satisfying conclusion in lieu of their next month's selection, none has any idea of the tempests about to erupt in her own world. Their intertwined lives and personal journeys, by turns humorous, sad, touching, and inspiring, furnish the raw ingredients for the new epilogue each writes.

Goodreads Summary

Upon reading the synopsis of this book I was immediately captivated and intrigued by what the pages of this novel would hold. The separate endings that each of the characters write are all interesting and different enough from each other to keep each new take fresh. All the characters are very believeable and bring a different flavor to the table of the story that keeps you interested and wanting to know the rest of the story.

I really liked the idea that someone is writing about a book club and it doesn't come off as the stereotypical older American's getting together over tea. While that does hold its place and is a comfort for many, this book goes far beyond the Sunday afternoon discussion of the typical classics. I loved how the personal lives played into the renditions that each of the characters made to the end od the story. Overall this is worth reading and caters to all types of readers out there.
