Long time "best friends" relationship is complicated by the mother of one of the women. This book points out that some people with money really do think they are entitled. Well written, interesting story about the dynamics of a long time relationship that started when these two women were in high school. Another lesson learned in the book is that love can find a way.
Enjoyed this book for the most part. The story of two long time friends from different backgrounds and how they learn to live with how different they are. Love the ending of the book! And how David was willing to do anything to be with Jayne. The only part I kept screaming at the book about was the Mother, Elizabeth, and what a stuck up snot she was when she came from the same background as Jayne.. But I guess it was suppose to be that way. LOL!
