Publisher's Summary

An extraordinary friendship binds two strikingly different women together through 30 years of drama, free-spirited joy, and shattering tragedy.

Critic Reviews

"A touching story of the friendship between two very different women. Cee Cee Bloom, with her loud mouth, loud personality and flaming red hair, is determined to become a Hollywood star. Bertie White, delicate and conservative, hopes for a loving husband and family. They meet as children in 1951 in Atlantic City, and, as pen pals, keep in touch with each other. Their reunions through the years always occur at or near the beach, whether in Sarasota, Malibu or Hawaii. Their story jumps back and forth between past and present. Cee Cee and Bertie are genuine, and readers will like them and understand why they are friends." (School Library Journal)

Sound Quality

I really enjoyed the book. The author does a wonderful job reading her work, however the sound quality is terrible.
