Dear Readers:


Do you have a BFF? Do you know more about each other than anyone else in the world?

This is the novel for you! It’s an ode to childhood friends and dreams, how each changes our lives and why we too often and too easily let those fade. I am so, so proud of this beautiful, sentimental summer story of friendship, tradition, love, loss and summer camp (with loads of ‘80s references! “Don’t let anyone bogart your copy of this book!”). More than anything, this novel will remind you of what’s most important in life and offer hope, which we need more than ever these days.

The first 100 ** readers who pre-order a copy of THE CLOVER GIRLS will be sent a beautiful, gold-plated four-leaf clover bookmark handmade in the USA by an East Coast artist!

To receive your bookmark, simply do the following:


*Include a copy of your pre-order receipt, plus your name and address

**Due to a fabulous response to the pre-order, we have increased the limit to 250 readers for the special edition bookmark!

*Order links from any of your favorite booksellers are available here!

Finally, stay tuned for a HUGE announcement in the coming weeks about how you and your BFF can appear in my next novel! 

I am beyond grateful for each and every one of you who have buoyed me over the years and given me the chance to do what I love. You are my heart, soul, cheerleaders and book BFFs.

Here’s more about THE CLOVER GIRLS:

Best Friends. Forever?

Bestselling author Viola Shipman is at her absolute best with The Clover Girls. Readers of all ages and backgrounds will love its powerful, redemptive nature and the empowering message at its heart.

Elizabeth, Veronica, Rachel and Emily met at Camp Birchwood as girls in 1985, where over four summers they were the Clover Girls—inseparable for those magical few weeks of freedom—until the last summer that pulled them apart. Now approaching middle age, the women are facing challenges they never imagined as teens, struggles with their marriages, their children, their careers, and wondering who it is they see when they look in the mirror.

Then Liz, V and Rachel each receive a letter from Emily with devastating news. She implores the girls who were once her best friends to reunite at Camp Birchwood one last time, to spend a week together revisiting the dreams they’d put aside and repair the relationships they’d allowed to sour. But the women are not the same idealistic, confident girls who once ruled Camp Birchwood, and perhaps some friendships aren’t meant to last forever…
