Helpful Score: 10
This book is now on my all time favorite list. Kris Radish writes for women about women. She has a way of making me relate to each and every character on many different levels. The story, about several women and their relationship to a deceased friend, can be sad and bittersweet, but at the same time, joyful, funny and exhilarating. Don't miss this one. I can't wait to read more from Radish.
Different people impact your life in various ways. Kris Radish took relationships that impacted the life of Annie Freeman and forced them into a traveling funeral journey without their friend. These friends "knew" about each other from conversations with Annie, but found true friendship with each other during their traveling journey.
