Publisher's Summary

From the USA Today best-selling author of The Summer Cottage 

"Like a true friendship, The Clover Girls is a novel you will forever savor and treasure." (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times best-selling author)

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....

USA Today best-selling 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.

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

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!

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.

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.

"Clover 🍀 Girls" Forever Amazing

I loved it! The narritor did an awesome job giving life to each of these wonderful chacters. I enjoyed it when the girls were back at camp in the 80'. It brought back memories of the best decade of my life. The struggles of life as a female teenager is shown within the words of Clover Girls. 🍀 Forever ♾️ You will love it ❤️.

Boring and disappointing!

The performance was so monotonous. It sounded as if they were first graders just learning to read. The story had potential but never reached it! The constant references to movies, music, clothes etc from the 80s was made my eyes roll I grew up in the 80s and I don’t make references or quote the 80s every second! The political undertones were unnecessary, specially when the character was not well developed. It’s funny that it was written by a man presuming that all women think alike. Cliche book not worth the time.
