This book is a WONDERFUL look into the lives and times of 2 remarkable women. My teenage son and I both enjoyed this immensely. We listened to the audio and watched the movie. Now I'm requesting the book. These ladies are wise, witty and have earned the right to "have their say".
Wonderful, inspiring and an easy read with complicated ideas to dwell on. I chose this book for our bookclub as well.
the book is arranged in decades. For the ones I lived in, I appreciated the sister's point of view and experiences. I found myself nodding in agreement. For the ones that my parents lived through, it provided insight.

I read this book several years ago, for a college English class. I was really moved by it. Even though most women get married and have children at least once in their life time. It appears these two were meant to live their lives other wise. I reordered it for a women that recently passed through my life for a brief period of time. She is in her sixty and about to retire from work. As she shared stories of her and her younger sister with me. I could see a lot of Sadie and Betsy in the two. So I gave the book to her as a retirement gift to read and then share with her sister to read. They both have lived together all their lives and she has never married or had children. I just hope it will bring her and her sister even closer in their own lives. I give it all five stars.
