A great read July 11 2007
By William Coles - Published on
Format: Hardcover
It's a great read - the intertwining lives of two childhood friends and how they have cleaved together over the decades. What's rare about this book is that each woman has her say and tells her own story - yet the sum is much more powerful than the two parts. Wonderful to see how these two young girls evolve into women as they nurture each other along the way. I loved it.

longtime meaningful friendship Aug. 1 2007
By Mrs C - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read this book because these authors went to school with my daughters. As I read, my interest went far beyond my connection. The candid sharing of both triumphs and let-downs of each woman was unique and interesting.
The lessons learned, the sacrifices and wisdom gained from following their dreams was fascinating. I highly recommend this book and hope they will continue writing.

True Friends! July 23 2007
By SH - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
How refreshing to read about two loving, smart, independent women and how they realize the need for loving interdependence between friends! The idea of writing a book together over time and many miles is a perfect illustration of their connection. Their stories of being there for each other -- in spirit and when possible in person -- through the best and worst of times are inspiring. They remind us that the realities of adult life are best viewed through loving eyes -- our own and those of our friends and families. I have read it and shared it with friends with joy and confidence that they will enjoy it as well. Definitely add it to your summer must read list.

Wonderfully refreshing tale of women and the meaning of friendship! July 10 2007
By D. M. Stuart - Published on
Format: Hardcover
How great to pick up a book and be reminded how women can be so supportive of one another! James and Mauney show how years can pass, people and their locations can change, but friendship can always be called upon to steady ones course.So many times we think that others live lives seeming to have it all,and these women candidly reveal bumps in the road that many of us can relate to. It may be siblings, love life or children that cause the bumps, but both Mauney and James show that by sharing our lifes trials with friends, truly halves the pain and doubles the pleasure!Bravo to a page turner that at the end, makes you want to share it with your own friend!!

Easy read. July 8 2007
By Andrew's Mommy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was prepared to LOVE this book but ended up just liking it and skipping through alot of it. I would have preferred to read 2 separate autobiographies frankly. Seems like the phone calls/emails/visits between the two women were played up b/c of the book's title. Interesting story and I'd like to read more about the two women individually but the book itself didn't WOW! me like I was hoping. Worth a read though.
