the tears between friends.

life is filled with scrimping and sacrifice.
You're my best friend. I can tell you ANYTHING.
As they grow up through the 1950s and 60s, their
circumstances, their choices-and their mistakes -- take
them in virtually opposite directions. Lesley stays in
their Washington State hometown. She gets pregnant and
marries young, living a cramped life defined by the demands
of small children, not enough money -- never enough money --

completely different way -- on a college campus shaken by
the Vietnam War and then as an idealistic young lawyer in
New York City.
There are no secrets between friends.
Through the years and across the miles, through marriage,
children, divorce and widowhood, Jill and Lesley remain
friends. They confide everything in each other -- every
grief and every joy.
This deeply moving novel proves once again that nobody
tells women's stories better than Debbie Macomber!
