While We Were Watching Downton Abbey

While We Were Watching Downton Abbey

Four friends, and a shared passion for Downton Abbey that will change their lives.

When the concierge of a historic Atlanta apartment building invites his fellow residents to join him for weekly screenings of Downton Abbey, four very different people find themselves connecting with the addictive drama, and – even more unexpectedly – with each other…

Samantha married young and for the wrong reason: the security of old Atlanta money – for herself and for her orphaned brother and sister. She never expected her marriage to be complicated by love and compromised by a shattering family betrayal.

Now an empty nester and a struggling author, Claire left her home in the suburbs for a new and productive life. But she soon wonders if clinging to old dreams can be more destructive than having no dreams at all.

And then there’s Brooke, a woman in constant battle with her faithless ex-husband. She’s just starting to realise that it’s time to take a deep breath and come to terms with the fact that her life is not the fairy tale she thought it would be.

For Samantha, Claire, Brooke – and Edward, who arranges the weekly gatherings – it will be a season of surprises as they forge a bond that will sustain them through some of life’s hardest moments-all of it reflected in their shared love of Downton Abbey.

a clever, fun little novel. . . If you're a sucker for plucky women who rise to the occasion, this is for you. . . You might even be tempted to move in. Edward would arrange everything. Of course

Just wonderful. The characters were real, believable, and not without their own flaws. The Downton Abbey theme was definitely the invisible thread that tightened the story into a well-written, enjoyable novel.
