Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Sandra, Colleen, and Jude have been close friends throughout much of their adult lives. Now in their sixties, they and their spouses share many treasured experiences between them and had planned on many more ahead, but Sandra is dying. Now in her final days, she wants desperately to give these best-loved friends something they can hold onto for the rest of their lives. Together they revisit the past, from the painful moments to the joyful ones, rediscovering all the things that brought them together. In the wake of Sandra’s death, though, Colleen and Jude face emotional trials that affect them as individuals as well as their relationships to each other and their spouses. Moving fluidly between the friends’ current viewpoints and flashbacks, Burnard (The Good House, 1999) captures the emotional complexity and confusion of losing a loved one. Instead of focusing solely on the pain of loss, she instills a note of hopefulness. With believable characters and a heartwarming message, this story about families, the ones we’re born with and the ones we choose, is a deeply moving, thought-provoking read. --Cortney Ophoff --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
