“A gifted storyteller...her characters are intelligent, brave, and witty...human and real.”
—Susan Isaacs, New York Times Book Review
The critically acclaimed author of Good-bye and Amen, Leeway Cottage, and More Than You Know, Beth Gutcheon returns with Gossip, a sharply perceptive and emotionally resonant novel about the power of knowing things about others, the consequences of rumor, and the unexpected price of friendship. A story set among the rich, famous, and well-dressed of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Gossip is a bravura display of this exceptional author’s breathtaking talents, addressing important themes of motherhood, friendship, and fidelity. Every reader who admires the strong, character-driven women’s fiction of Sue Miller, Alice Hoffman, Elizabeth Berg, and Kaye Gibbons should lend an ear to Beth Gutcheon’s Gossip.

In the past I have enjoyed Beth Gutcheons writing but this one put me to sleep. I finally gave up and I never give up on books. It just didn't seem to get any more interesting as I read on. I was about 200 pages in. By then it should have sparked some interest but unfortunately it didn't.
I wanted to like this book, but I didn't. At all. It was slow, boring, and several hours of my life that I'll never get back. :(
Very surprised at now much I enjoyed this novel. Loved the fictional world of women thru the decades and the twists and turns their lives go thru.
