Best Friends by Consuelo Saah Baehr is the story of three girls who meet while attending St. Mildred's academy for girls. As most young girls do, they make a promise to each other to remain best friends no matter what, until things suddenly change when Sara unexpectedly has to leave the school because of her father's passing. The book jumps ahead to tell the separate stories of the three women who did not keep in touch as promised and how they have grown on their own as strong women. Even though all three women have certainly had their share of heartache, their lives are still intertwined even though they may not realize it at the time. Best Friends is written in such a way that you are pulled in and can relate to the circumstances in at least one of the women's stories, if not all three. This book reminds us about the value of friendship and how even though friends may spend years apart, they are still willing to sacrifice everything to help a friend. You will experience friendship, love, pain, and loss along with Natalie, Sara, and Miranda from the beginning to the heart wrenching end! Best Friends does contain adult material best suited for mature audiences that are ages 18 and over.

Best Friends was not your typical feel good story or a familiar story of triumph. The story was however semi typical of life that is to say that we all deal with crap, make poor choices and attempt redemption or make promises we can't keep but come through on in the end. My assumption is that the author identifies with the writer in Sara, the heartbreak and deceit in Natalie and the strength in M. I think she wrote the story that Sara had not.

I found it to be an interesting read. Some of the negative reviews are accurate, however the info they are looking for is not needed for the story line. The book does leave you curious as to what's next for about a minute, but you soon realize you can answer most of your own questions.

For a book entitled "Best Friends," the main characters spend the bulk of the book having little to do with each other. Other than attending the same school as children, they spend their adulthoods leading completely separate lives. The two who do reconnect are friendly acquaintances, at best.

All three women are interesting, well characterized and each story is compelling on it's own - there is just very little overlap until the climax and, at that point, you wonder why they're suddenly so devoted to each other after years of indifference.

All of the men, on the other hand, both the heroes and the villains, are incredibly undefined. They do things for plot purposes, then stop doing them, then do them again without much rhyme or reason. We don't know why any of the women love the men they do, or why the men do/don't love them back.

That said, for a .99 cent Kindle book, "Best Friends" was a fun, soapy read, well worth your time and money.

I am a big fan of Ms. Baehr's writing. She has a way of drawing readers into the story and not letting them go until the last page.

The three women in Best Friends met and became best friends at their boarding school. They promised to stay best friends forever and then, as they grew up and left school, they lost touch with each other.

The story followed each of the women as they led their separate lives. Rich details describing the setting and the well-drawn characters made me feel really involved in what was happening. The women didn't always make the best decisions, especially about men, but I cared about them. The men in their lives were very much secondary characters, but knowing what I did about the women and their backgrounds, I was not really surprised with their choices in boyfriends and husbands.

Eventually the three found each other again, though not in the way I'd expected. I won't say more because I don't want to spoil things, but when I reached the final few chapters I simply could not stop reading.

I scarcely know what to say about this book. When I came to the end of the story I had come to dislike every character in it...even some of the children. It began as a tale of three girls in a private school together and how they came to be connected with one another and then skipped ahead to look at their lives as adults. Having lost touch through all of those years, their stories once again merge together in a rather bizarre way. The books looks at the frailties of women - their hopes and dreams, unfulfilled desires, their marriages and lives as mothers. There are no happy endings in this book for anyone. It tended to jump around a bit and there were times I felt confused about what was happening to who. Despite all of the negativity, I liked the book well enough.

This has now become my favorite book. The author's writing style is unparallelled in being uniquely insightful, while spare and nonjudgmental. The tension and drama in this book are achieved through tight and misleadingly simple dialog and narratives. The connections between the many well fleshed out characters is handled brilliantly and the end was logical and cohesive, as well. Baehr masters the spin of turning what is irrational into inevitably rational. I was compelled to read this novel nonstop for three days and loved the quirkiness and peculiarities of personalities being dealt with in as blase a manner as 'normal' behavior. An amazing piece of work by a brilliant writer. Baehr puts me in mind of Ann Tyler.
