"The best way to have a friend is to be one."
Looking for a book to get lost in? This one is about women's dreams and goals, women's issues, and women's secrets. The characters are everyday women leading everyday lives and pursuing their common interest of writing. Then the bottom falls out and one of the women sees her life fall apart. As her three friends rush to her side they all eventually "get real" with each other, and secrets, long hidden, flow from each of them.
Are you and I so fortunate to have our BFFs come to our aide, make us food, hold our hand, pull us back to life? Would we even let them know if we needed them??? Remember people cannot help us if they don't know we need help. Even the main character of this book retreated and tried to hide away. Would we drop everything and show up for a friend in monumental ways?
Although people may have hundreds of Facebook or Twitter friends, they say we are "lucky" if we have 5 real friends in the world. Do you?
This is a fun book to read. You can probably find it at your library if you enjoy reading women's fiction and stories about friendship.
