I'm almost hating that this reading adventure will soon come to an end because it will be like saying good-bye to old friends.
I highly recommend this book to women everywhere who cherish their friends and for men who are wanting a better understanding what makes women's relationships such a powerful thing.
We sacrifice friends too easily, not giving ourself permission to care deeply enough. In the chronicling of their own path and those of others Ellen and Pat have given all women a priceless gift. The possibilities of a deep and meaningful friendship unfold, and the pitfalls that can hamper growth are discussed in words that welcome and are easy to read.
If this book is widely enough shared, perhaps our daughters will be able to develop friendships earlier and avoid the destructive nature of middle-school cliques, or falling into the arms of the wrong man to satisfy their need for a friend.
