I absolutely loved this book. I had never heard of the author before and I happen to be looking for something else when I came across her and I’m so glad I did. This book spans the lifetime of two women from the time they were pre-teens to adults. There was so many memorable things in this book from my life growing up in the 70’s and 80’s that it was so easy to relate to. I laughed and I cried with the characters as they faced life head on. The happy times, struggles and the betrayals the forgiveness and the love, that happens when two people are linked by friendship for life. I am anxious to find other books by this author. When you can make a reader care about the characters so much that you cry while reading what they are experiencing you know that you have succeeded. Well done Ms. Hannah.
