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.

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.

The format is a bit odd.

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

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!

Depressing.

Every time something good happens to one of the main characters something bad in return happens to one of them

The Power of Friendship

Tracing a friendship through the years, two women encourage each other and share emotions of the good and bad of living and loving. This book is also a great record of historical event over a lifetime. The diary effect was a little harder to follow in a verbal presentation than in written form, but gave an interesting viewpoint.

Best Friends

I loved the story line of this book but was not real impressed with the letter writing way of delivering the message. I guess I am old fashioned and like to just read the story as a performance.

Awkward for Audio

The story is told in letter and email form. It would have been fine to read; however, it made the audio book awkward. The storyline was enjoyable.

Good story of lifelong friendship

Enjoyed story however did not care for format of reading entire book of letters and later emails between the characters. It was a bit tedious when they would read a form reciting every blank, number, instruction... could have just said arrest warrant for Buck Knowles or college app for Lindy Knowles...
