I can’t stop raving about this book. It’s written in Epistolary form; a collection of letters and journal entries of two best friends. It spans through their birth, meeting,teenage years, heartbreaks, love, marriage, childbirth, loss and growth.

I recommend it to anyone who loves books themed on the friendship and bond between women.
