Publisher's Summary

Bestselling author Viola Shipman is at her absolute best with The Clover Girls. Listeners of all ages and backgrounds will love its powerful, redemptive nature and the empowering message at its heart.

Elizabeth, Veronica, Rachel and Emily met at Camp Birchwood as girls in 1985, where over four summers they were the Clover Girls—inseparable for those magical few weeks of freedom—until the last summer that pulled them apart. Now approaching middle age, the women are facing challenges they never imagined as teens, struggles with their marriages, their children, their careers, and wondering who it is they see when they look in the mirror.

Then Liz, V and Rachel each receive a letter from Emily with devastating news. She implores the girls who were once her best friends to reunite at Camp Birchwood one last time, to spend a week together revisiting the dreams they'd put aside and repair the relationships they'd allowed to sour. But the women are not the same idealistic, confident girls who once ruled Camp Birchwood, and perhaps some friendships aren't meant to last forever….

Predictable and bland

I would not recommend this book. The story was rather juvenile and underdeveloped. I found the characters one-dimensional. The book seemed more concerned with highlighting “the good ol days” with “trendy” 80s nostalgia than crafting a believable compelling story. The thing dead ends before it begins. I found it so shallow and bland, I couldn’t finish it.

Waste of my time...

I wanted to like this book, but I couldn't. I listened to the entire thing, but all I got out of it was a group of superficial, shallow, teenage girls who turn into grudge carrying women still seeking approval from the world. Yes they redeem themselves to a degree in the end, but it was predictable, and not worth my time for the story. However, the narration was very good.

starts out strong and then repetitive and boring

I liked the idea of remembering camp but story goes nowhere and just too simple. telling us something is a metaphor misses the point.

Loved it!!

I loved this listen so much I have never listened or read a book by this author and I believe I will be listening to many many more. The narrator‘s were very well picked and really brought the characters to life I wrote a review on another page stating I laughed and I cried and then I laughed again and cried again. There’s some Nostalgia and some real life thoughts and feelings that are relatable and give richness to the story. I highly recommend this listen

An Amazing “Coincidence!”

This is the best story that I have been blessed with in quite some time. It was shared by one of my own Clover Girls. She is a friend I grew up with—one from whom I was separated far too long because of youthful hurts. So much later, we too have been drawn back together in forgiveness and friendship.

Heartfelt story

A wonderful book about coming of age as well as rediscovery. I cried both sad and joyous tears. Definitely worth reading

Nostalgic Story of Friendship and Forgiveness

I enjoyed listening to this book. Four different readers for the four main characters who met at summer camp in the 80’s and reunite in 2021 after the death of one of their foursome. It was sweet without being overly sentimental. It brought back memories of my own childhood, attending camp, making new friends, writing letters to each other until we would see each other again the next summer. The author includes many fun elements of the 80’s from Madonna to friendship pins. This is a great summer read. This was my first Viola Shipman novel, and it won’t be the last!

Must listen or better yet read this book

Love the clover girls. Book is about four girls who meet at summer camp a form a friendship. One of the girls invites the other three to the same camp twenty some years after there last season. The story is about how there lives have progressed since there last year at camp together. Are any of them living the life they imagined? Loved this book and did not want the story to end. Love Viola Shipman books.
