"What do you say when you know you don't have forever? Ruth has been Ann's closest friend for years---her confidante, her solace, her comic relief, her tutor in life's mysterious ways. So when Ruth becomes ill, Ann is there for her without question. After all, it is Ruth who encouraged Ann to become who she is, Ruth whose rebellious, eccentric spirit provided the perfect counterpoint to Ann's conventional, safe outlook.
And so the friends go on as they always have...gossiping, consoling and sharing intimate secrets---but with the knowledge that each shared evening could be their last.
Acclaimed author Elizabeth Berg has created a searing novel about the strength and salvation of women's friendships. Deeply moving and surprisingly funny, TALK BEFORE SLEEP is an intimate, uncensored portrait of love and loss, struggle and resilience."
A book that is tender and irreverent by turns, funny and heartbreaking as well. It will remind you of the very best, warmest, closest friendships you have ever had which is the special kind only women can (and do) share. These are women you will recognize and feel comfortable with immediately.
If this is an example of Elizabeth Berg's writing, I can't wait to read her other books. I can understand why she is so popular. This is the first of her books I have read, but based on rave reviews I have read, I have purchased four others. Now that I have become a fan, I am looking forward to reading and sharing her other works. You would too.
