Review: Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand

All in all, this was the perfect poolside read–I’m going to add this author’s other books to my Goodreads to-read list. There are “chicks” hilderbrwnd a “beach”, but just getting to the beach is a simple task that almost defeats these three women.

She’s Vicki’s younger sister.

I found this so fascinating because it felt like the further I read the more of the “picture” I uncovered until at last I could see the whole story. Melanie hlderbrand a chronic complainer until she romances grim aspiring writer Josh, whom she has run into again and brought on as the house babysitter.


Secondly, the author sucked at writing. Brendaa prominent professor, has a scandalous affair with an older student that got her fired from her job Vickie, mother to two small boys, hilderbrans been diagnosed with lung cancer. I wasn’t able to easily put this down; I was wrapped up in the characters and their lives and the drama within their lives. Sadly, Barefoot fails there also. My ambivalence over the ending probably sums up what for me the biggest issue with this book is: Nov 08, Jennefer rated it really liked it.

And even though we aren’t, like, working or anything we are still going to hire someone to watch the kids!

Hilderbrand does an excellent job of capturing the sense of conflict Vicki feels about her cancer and its treatment, as well as the mix of guilt, shame and indignation over her hildwrbrand.


I felt the end wrapped up too nicely and too neatly for all of the characters. Her unspoken message to Brenda regarding her boys towards the end of the book was very touching and inspiring.

It is a bittersweet novel depicting the importance of family and friends when life hits a rough patch. See all reviews. By serendipity, they meet a few more times and Josh ends up becoming their nanny for the summer. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. It read like a soap opera would if it were a novel. Summer at Willow Lake. The books ending, too, feels awfully neat and rushed: While I was still sad that the story came to an end, I was also happy that things turned out well for everyone especially Vicky although I was a little disappointed Melanie stayed with Peter.

And, I guess, she is trying to help with her sister’s kids.
