If you were a child of the 80's you will remember the television show the Facts of Life where Lisa Whelchel played the character Blair.
Lisa Whelchel is a part of Women of Faith, and she has written several other books. She resides in Texas with her husband and three children.
Friendship for Grown-ups is very different from any of her other books. This book is Lisa opening up and sharing her soul with her readers. I would say it was more of a journal of her experiences.
The book is about the struggles that she has had making true friends, and really opening up with friends due in part to her struggles as a childhood star.
In this book Lisa shares what it is like to bare your soul to a friend and then have that friend not be exactly what you thought a friend might be. She shares her journey of finding a true friend, someone who is a safe friend, someone you can share anything with.
Overall this is a very easy book to read, she really opens up and shares her struggles with friendship, and how she is finding true friends, and how adults can find the true meaning of friendship.
I really enjoyed reading this book, the only thing I kept wondering was where was her husband was through her ordeal. She really went through a lot of stuff and he was never mentioned as being a support to her. I would highly recommend any one who is struggling in the area of friendship to get a copy!
