The Bloom Girls Reviews
This is story about how three sisters who come together to mourn the death of their father. Each sister comes with her own feelings about her father. Changes in the family circumstances many years before was perceived by each of the daughters in a different manner. It may have been because of the different ages of the girls but as the story develops it appears that the failure to communicate was one of the big reasons for this situation.
I enjoyed the book. It is well written with story character ...more

My Review: ✰✰✰✰⭒
I’m always thrilled to find out an author whose book I like is a near neighbor of mine. I’m here in Southern New Hampshire and she’s just down there on Martha’s Vineyard. This is Ms. Cavanaugh’s debut novel, which came out in March of this year. I struggle over ...more
I love life stories and reflections on the past, especially when those reflections lead to personal growth. This book satisfied some of my continual hunger for complex life stories. The girls dealt with many moral and life issues and the author did a good job of addressing them humanly instead of pushing one way or another. Being a Christian I found myself rooting for the girls to land on my perspective of certain issues (and did find victory in one particularly glaring issue), but where the aut ...more
I generally read YA and am used to more in-your-face prose. The Bloom Girls takes a big well-seasoned pot, adds the flavors of three unique characters, and simmers the whole thing slowly. Moody and evocative, it was the perfect post-inauguration read.
3 very different sisters find out one day that their Dad has died.
Suzy and Violet did not see their father much over the years as he divorced their Mom and then moved away.
There was no reason- once he embarrassed the family with a scandal in their school where he taught and the girls attended. Could it have been true? It must have been since Dad resigned .
Oldest daughter, Cal, always kept in touch with her Dad and is "falling apart" over this tragic news.
When they go to plan the funeral service ...more
I'd like to thank Amazon Publishing and Goodreads Giveaways for a Kindle copy of Emily Cavanagh's "The Bloom Girls."
Who designed that gorgeous cover for this book? Obviously, someone who didn't read it. Who wrote the description for this book? Obviously, someone who didn't read it. Needless to say, the storyline was not what I was prepared to be reading. I felt like I was promised one thing and given another.
Yes, this is a story about three sisters named Cal, Violet, and Suzy, named after flowe ...more
I needed a quick read--this delivered. I thought the story could have continued, but I think the implied outcome was there, just not spelled out--or maybe I just created that ending in my mind. If you have a three-hour flight, some time in a waiting room to fill, or just want to read something that will take your mind off of your own life, this book will do the trick. Read it through my Kindle Unlimited account.
