As the years pass, Clare becomes a doctor and Sally a lawyer, always remaining roommates at heart, only a plane ride or phone call away. Marriages and divorces and births and deaths do not separate them. But secrets might - for as Clare watches, the Rose family begins to self-destruct before her eyes. And the things she knows are the kinds of things that no one wants to tell a best friend.

"Freshly observed and gifted....The book never loses its edge...nor its moving conviction that a strong friendship between women can be one of life's most powerful relationships." (Publishers Weekly)
"A valentine to the staying power of women's friendships." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)
Odd pairing of two women and three or so decades of their evolution, devolution, intersection and divergence. Issues a bit dated (this is a nineties book) but that's just backstory. The basic narrative translates into any time and place and could all happen in present day with different situational challenges.
I thoroughly enjoyed this read, despite the naive-sounding narrator and her histrionics.
