While We Were Watching Downton Abbey
I only recently became a Downton Abbey fan. I finally watched every episode and the movie earlier this year. Naturally, when I stumbled upon this book. I just had to read it. And I am glad I did. While We Were Watching Downton Abbey by Wendy Wax is a novel about three women: Brooke, Claire and Samantha living in an upscale condo in Atlanta. Each woman is facing her own issues and trying to find a way forward. One is a recently divorced mother of two young girls with a selfish ex-husband. The other is a writer with a looming deadline and writer’s block and the third character is facing a crisis in her marriage.
The concierge at the condo building is a Brit who brings the women together weekly for a Downton Abbey viewing party. During the process they forge a friendship and help each other through trying times. While the stories are not necessarily unique, the characters are well-flushed out and their struggles are relatable. While there are only a few fleeting references to the show it’s still a fun read. Kudos to the author who was smart enough to capitalize on a sensational tv series and din the process write a nice, light novel.
