A lovely story of the lifecycle of a friendship between three women as they grow older. Each woman grows into a unique individual, thereby converging from who she was and what she had in the past. It was interesting to watch their growth. I think the ending could have been a bit more complete, but overall I would recommend this to any woman wanting light reading on friendships.

Probably a bit too much romance for my personal preference but an okay read. Most relationships and the problems/dynamics were predictable.
