I have been waiting not very patiently for my turn in the wishlist line for this book. It was sooooo worth the wait!! When I saw it was about 16 women, I thought "I will never keep these women apart"; the author chose five of the 16 women and told their stories. It was perfect!! The friendship between these women is so beautiful! I can't convey exactly how special this book is; but you just have to read it. I found a quote that describes how this book made me feel: "You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have a lost a friend."-Paul Sweeney
Only in this case, it was five friends! I read the author's notes and she and the editors called the women in this book "The Fab Five". That is exactly right.
