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.
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.
