Phew! I have just finished this amazing story so wonderfully written. I feel I know all the people so well and have lived it with them. It is so cleverly done leaving us with a couple of questions and I especially want to know, is - who is Malory's father? What happened next? Read full review

Peachtree Road was a beautifully written novel. Anne Rivers Siddons best effort. All of her books are a gift but this one I will never forget. I wanted it to go on and on. Characters so true I could relate to them and compare then to my friends when I was growing up. Buy it and read it. Read full review
