Publisher's Summary

From the time they were young, Gayle and Patricia were raised like sisters, as close as two friends could be. But they each had dreams that would take them far away - and far away from each other.

Gayle was the beauty who believed that a man could make her life complete. Patricia was the intellectual who thought that rising to the top of her career would make her happy. And then there is Marcus Carter, who has been linked to both Gayle and Pat since the tragedy that occurred when they were all children. Can either one save him from himself? Can friends survive a love that comes between them? Each of them gets what she wants, but no one counts on the price they have to pay.

When they realize that dreams can be hollow and love has its cost, they learn the most important lessons of all: to never give up on the people who love you, and that it isn't just blood that makes two people sisters.

Better with each chapter!

the novel follows the main characters from childhood to mature adult. the deeper into the novel I got the more I enjoyed it. I found myself getting impatient with some of the character's actions and giving them advice. I was surprised at how well researched various aspects of the story were. The novel was a great read and I hated for it to end.

Great book!

The book kept my attention the entire time! I couldn't stop playing it until I finished it. I loved following the story of Gayle, Patricia and Marcus! It was beautifully written and the reader did an excellent job! The reader changed accents and tones to match characters and I appreciated that.

Wow!!

What a story! It seems that everything comes full circle. The books starts a little slowly but takes the reader on an adventurous ride...full of emotion- humorous, frustrating, sad, panic stricken, frightening, joyous, and relieving. Would definitely recommend.

Second time sweeter

I read this book over 20 years ago remembering I really like it. So I decided to read it again. Life is so much different now than then. This book was even more enjoying the second time around. Every waking minutes I wanted to know what came next. I compared my life and relationships to Gail and Pat, where I’ve been, where I’ve come from, where I am now and where I’m going. Thank you Ms. DeBerry and Ms. Grant for allowing me to lose myself in this book, re-evaluate the good and bad life throws at us and be reminded we are resilient.

Good Pick

This is one book, I wouldn't mind listening to again. The end makes me feel all warm inside.... Almost wish it was a movie.

Wonderful read!

I thoroughly loved this book! It was an easy yet riveting read! I loved the twists and turns throughout the story! The characters were unforgettable yet individually unique in their own way.
I truly “LOVED” it and it was hard to put down! I now intend to read other books by these 2 authors!

A Hard Listen

I struggled with this book and I must admit I did not finish. Narrator's tone was boring and made it hard to get into the story. It may be better as a read but as an audible it is a no for me.
