Silver Girl is the perfect book to read over a long summer weekend. This book touches on friendship, betrayal, romance and redemption -- all against the backdrop of beautiful Nantucket. Meredith Delinn is living a rich, privaledged life with her husband Freddy. Then her world comes crashing down when Freddy is convicted of running a ponzi scheme and cheating his investors out of billions. (ripped from the headlines of the Bernie Madoff scandal?) Alone, and in hiding, Meredith reaches out to her long lost childhood friend, Connie. Connie is also struggling alone as she recently lost her husband to cancer. Connie and Meredith spend the summer at Connie's house in Nantucket attempting to rebuild their lives. Slowly, the two learn how to embrace life again after loss. Hildebrand also ties in a little romance with an old flame and a new flame. There is a touch of mystery as Meredith has to help the feds recover some of Freddy's hidden money. If you want an easy, entertaining book, this is a good choice.
