Summary

The story of a remarkable friendship - told in a remarkable way. A story in which every woman will recognize herself...and her best friend

Jillian Lawton and Lesley Adamski. Two girls from very different backgrounds become best friends in the turbulent '60s, but their circumstances and choices - and their mistakes - take them in opposite directions. Lesley stays in their hometown. She marries young, living a life defined by the demands of small children, never enough money, and an unfaithful husband. Jill lives those years on a college campus shaken by the Vietnam War, and then as an idealistic young lawyer in New York City.

But they always remain friends.

Through the years and across the miles, Jill and Lesley confide everything to each other - every grief and joy. Because the quality of a friendship is the quality of a life.

Bonus Novella: Home to Honeymoon Harbor by JoAnn Ross

The rivalry between the Mannion and Harper families has divided them for over a century. Which is why, when John Mannion and Sara Harper fall in love, they become the small seaport town's very own Romeo and Juliet. But in Honeymoon Harbor, nothing - not even an infamous family feud - is a match for love.

The format is a bit odd.

I struggled with the addresses and letterhead being recited when changing characters in the book.

good story crappy format!

As always, I very much enjoy Debbie Macombers stories,and this was no exception. That being said, I did not like the format at all. to listen to every address on every envelope, or every line of an airline ticket was very tedious. I thought of returning the book, but muscled my way through. I will not however purchase written in this format.

Time and dates

While I didn’t dislike the storyline, the constant announcing of dates and time was really unnecessary. I almost quit listening Gabon several occasions, but thought I should try to listen since I paid for it. I would not be inclined to recommend this book. I have listened to many Debbie Macomber stories and have enjoyed them.

Enjoyable

I have read most of Debbie Macomber books. This was quite different, more of a journal. If you have every experienced a long friendship with someone this book will bring your memories to life!

Tedious

Hard to listen to at times. Not my favorite Debbie Macomber book. Usually love every thing she writes but this was boring at times.

I LOVED IT!!!!!

At first, I was really concerned about listening to the book after reading the previous comments. I am so happy that I decided to form my own opinion and I did not go by what others thought of the book. Yes, it was a totally different listening experience .... but it was amazing! It brought back so many memories!! I laughed, I cried, and I loved it!!!

Recommended! Plan to send three hard copies too!

Touching, historical, and a beautiful focus on women being there for each other. I plan on mailing a copy to my college roommate, my cousin & my dear sister in law.

Audiobook failure

The story was OK but the format was not good for an audiobook. Listening to a police report and a travel itinerary verbatim was painful.

A truly great story

I loved this story!
I loved the format.... letters, diary entries, and announcements.
My favorite part was the historical references.... I am of age to have been Leslie’s 1st child, and it was such a wonderful walk through historic events.
Wonderful

Life’s memories

I liked the thorough development of the girls friendship and how their early years were so reflective of life at that time. I envy their friendship. Macomber captured the thrill of receiving letters, and you couldn’t wait to respond sharing your reaction, your own thoughts & exciting news, support. I also liked that Macomber hit on all of history’s major events & how they impacted our lives. Great read.
