I loved this book. It was like standing on the outside of a window and watching the lives of these women and all they have gone through and shared. Truly amazing to see how they have gone from childhood friends to adult friends. You will get a glimpse of each women and who they were as a child and what they have become as a women.
I would recommend this book to everyone, there is something to be learned from these women on the value of friendship.
