In their time of need, Kace Morgan, a distant relative appears and Gemma realizes she still has choices. But can she handle the loss of all she has known and a new life that is far from the sheltering wealth she has grown up with?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! July 17 2003
I think this book is great. It begins with Sharlotte Ashford, a nineteen year old debutante, who is on the verge of becoming engaged to another wealthy man. Then a man from her past resurfaces, and try as she may, she cannot shake him from her thoughts. She undergoes a transformation from high society, wealth, and lavishness to becoming a "western" girl and a true Godly woman. I would MOST definitely recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth the read! Feb. 8 2001
By Karen
In my opinion, "Wednesday's Child" is the best book in the series. Unlike the first two, which are set in Europe during WWII, this book takes place in America at the time of the Great Depression. Sharlotte, who is a Wednesday's Child, is introduced to the reader as a spoiled, flirting nineteen year old who is aware of her beauty, stable financial situation and social level, and her likely upcoming engagement to a wealthy, promising man. If you're hoping for some quick action, you won't be disappointed. A murder, a dashing rival from Sharlotte's past, and the stock market crash set the pace for an exciting book. Linda Chaikin also does a wonderful job bringing all the characters to life for the reader, as well as coming through with the Christian context expected. I found the characters easy to understand and relate to. The plot was very well developed, with an abundance of excitement and adventure. I was intrigued for the duration of the book!
Like another reviewer, I agree that "Gone with the Wind" and "the wild west" scenarios are reflected in "Wednesday's Child". This book is sure to delight many readers; thrilling and mysterious, romantic, historic- these all make an awesome book. It's definitely worth the 400+ page read!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wednesday's Child Nov. 20 2000
Of the three self-contained books in the "Day to Remember" series thus far, this one is my favorite. The heroine is well developed and her character evolution through the Depression era is done with sensitivity, humor, and pathos. Some of the more minor characters tend to be two-dimensional, but I don't know how that problem could be avoided since this is a single self-contained story and there are no sequels to flesh out the minors.
I especially like how Linda Chaikin brings out the wonderful mystery of femininity and masculinity in her hero and heroine and plays those opposites against each other. If one likes murder-mysteries, this plot has that element as well.
If you are anything of a history buff, you will like how little tidbits from the Depression era are woven in and out of the fast-moving tale as well. The dialogue between the hero and heroine is engrossing: one-upmanship, flirting, & tension keep the reader riveted. No profanity & no bodice-ripping scenes help keep the storyline on a higher plane as well. When I'm finished reading Chaikin's stories, I find myself wanting to emulate her hero/heroine's higher principles in my own life.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a book! Jan. 3 2001
By Jennie
I really love this book!! I like the way Linda Chaikin puts the book into 3 parts with Bible verses that mark the exact way that the story goes. I really love the characters especially Sharlotte and Kace. Sharlotte maybe full of woe but nothing is so dark that God won't turn into light. Especially during one of the worst times in the 20th century: The Great Depression. I was thinking about how she's such a spoiled brat (but that only makes the story more interesting) and Kace is a good-looking, funny,and intelligent man. This is different than what Mrs.Chaikin has ever done before and I liked the way that she could change her style of writing abit. Her A DAY TO REMEMBER series definitely deserves a reward for the research, plots, and the characters she makes up. I really love it!
