While We Were Watching tells the story of a group of women discovering not just Downton Abbey but friendship, too. Written by Wendy Wax, it shares their modern day struggles and how they support each other through the ups and the downs that life has thrown at them.
Set in The Alexander, a historic Atlanta apartment building that sounds absolutely lovely, this story features three main female characters:
Samantha Davis, a wealthy woman who married for money for herself and her younger siblings.
Claire Walker, a struggling author now also struggling to be happy on her own as an empty nester in a new environment.
Brooke MacKenzie, a woman married to an unfaithful husband and a decidedly un-nice husband.

The story unfolds with both drama and humour. You will find yourself cheering the ladies on. The story will quickly draw you in and, unfortunately, be over far too soon.
If you are looking for something fun to read that harks back to Downton Abbey, you might want to pick up While We Were Watching Downton Abbey. It would of course make an excellent gift choice for someone who is enthralled with the series. You can order your copy of While We Were Watching Downton Abbey from Amazon by clicking right here.
