Hill Towns

I always enjoy a good book by Anne Rivers Siddons. This one spent two months on the New York Times bestseller list and I could see why.
This is a story of a woman who refuses to leave her home. She’s agoraphobic only in the sense that she will only travel so far from the house and has never left the hill she grew up on.
When friends decide to marry in Italy, she is determined to take charge of her fears and accompany them. She does quite well, even though her husband isn’t much help at all. In fact, he made me wish I could meet him face-to-face and give him a piece of my mind!
There are a variety of unusual occurrences within this story and a few twists to keep things interesting.
You’ll like this book. I certainly did.
