    I won this copy from Goodreads in exchange for an honest review. I gave it 3.5 stars only because the first 75-80% was a retelling of the first two books, The Sandpiper and Behold the Rainbow. I enjoyed the characters and their interactions in the first book and felt like they were friends. I jumped at the chance to win The Cameron Women and to find out what was going on in their lives. But there just wasn't enough new material until too late in the book. Having said that, I did find the detaile I won this copy from Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.

But there just wasn't enough new material until too late in the book. Having said that, I did find the detailed struggles of Jamie to stay sober are very important. Non-alcoholics just don't understand how hard it is to control the cravings, and tend to write them off as weak or losers. The author drives home the point that it is very hard to fight the cravings and kindness and compassion are needed to support the alcoholic's efforts. If you haven't read the first two books, you will enjoy The Cameron Women.

    I won this book in a giveaway. This very long book. Parts of it were heartwarming, and the author depicted Jamie's struggle with sobriety very well. It was just so repetitive. Information was repeated over and over as if we hadn't already read about it. For example, almost every time Pogo the dog was mentioned, it was like, Pogo, who came to the family in this way on this night and was everyone's dog but really Jamie's dog, The facts around them getting Pogo were explained so many times.

It was like this with many things that happened in the book. Maybe the author was worried that the book was so long we readers wouldn't be able to remember important events unless she told us over and over (thus making the book overlong-- a vicious cycle). A majority of the first half of the book was also spent telling us about things that had happened in the past. Then, as soon as we got to some interesting, current events, the book jumps ahead five years so we once again get told about something pretty important from a character's memory of it. I found it odd. That being said, I liked the story itself. I liked Aunt Nina's quotes. I liked the family and the setting. I think that a strong editor could have eliminated a lot of the repetition and this could have been a great 400 page book .

    WOW, WHAT A NOVEL! At first I didn't like Jamie Cameron for her self centered and spoils ways nor for her older sister who always tried to keep her out of trouble! Just released from a clinic for drug and alcohol addition, Jamie headed home to her small town in Illinois, but she never told anyone about her dark secret that set her on a roller coaster from hell, not even her sister. Meanwhile, Kate her sister wanted a baby so badly that she and her husband secretly went to another town for help. WOW, WHAT A NOVEL!

    I won this book through a Goodreads Giveaway. This book tries REALLY hard to be many things: A mystery, a book about addiction, a book about cancer, a story about friendship, a story of infertility, and book about family...Overall, this book just tries to hard to be too many things. The author is so scattered that the story lines are too muddled, too long, and too many in number. While some of the plot lines were engaging, others were stupid and had no point. I think Lovell should have stuck with I won this book through a Goodreads Giveaway.

I think Lovell should have stuck with one or two main ideas and left the others to another story.

    The Cameron Women is about love, addiction, loss, and feeling betrayed. It begins with the women's keeping secrets and misunderstanding each other. The mother unable to cope with loss becomes silent which leads to how her two daughters doing the same with their own pain. While the oldest tries to be perfect, the youngest struggles with addiction. It is a good story though rather long. In the end however you need the characters to receive a happy ending which they do.

    Picked this gem up thru Amazon's Kindle Unlimited. Great story. Different from my usual read. Good character development. Various story lines all entwined nicely. Thought the story was done when Aunt Nina died but wow was there more to be told. Picked this gem up thru Amazon's Kindle Unlimited. Great story. Different from my usual read.

    Hard to put down! Make sure you have your tissues by your side as you read this book. This book, while long, is a surprisingly quick read. I read it in two sessions only because I needed to get some sleep. This book is so engrossing, time flies by, suddenly four hours have gone by, the night sky is lightening, your alarm will go off soon, you never went to sleep but still you feel compelled to read just one more chapter! The characters are wonderfully drawn, don't bother trying to chose a favorit Hard to put down! Make sure you have your tissues by your side as you read this book. This book, while long, is a surprisingly quick read. I read it in two sessions only because I needed to get some sleep. This book is so engrossing, time flies by, suddenly four hours have gone by, the night sky is lightening, your alarm will go off soon, you never went to sleep but still you feel compelled to read just one more chapter! The characters are wonderfully drawn, don't bother trying to chose a favorite. Only one small qualm, when I was 50% into the book there is a sentence noting that a character was rocking "autistically" in her grief. I don't believe the author was trying to offend, I think she believed it to accurately depict what she was saw her character doing. It hit me, I had a visceral reaction to its usage, it made me uncomfortable. I suppose many may think me too sensitive, I suppose I may be. What I am sensitive to is seeing my own child rocking like that and feeling (and knowing) that I am unable to reach him or help him while he is in distress. Like I said, I don't believe any offense or indifference was intended but that being said I couldn't help feeling as I did (and do) and I can't help wondering if another word could have been used. This did not stop me from loving this book, it just gave me pause. Other than this one instance, I found The Cameron Women to be uplifting and accepting of all.
