I have been waiting a long time to read this book and finally found it in the “book club” reading room in the South Jordan library.
I have been lucky recently to read some great love stories. I really enjoyed These Is My Words, especially for the love story contained in the main story line. The love story in Hunger Games is complex, but I am still hoping for a happy ending to the trilogy. And then there’s this book. . .
At the beginning I should have accepted this book for what it was: a story about two women. I thought that the storyline between the two girls would die down once the women were married. Um, no. The husbands are mentioned occasionally but the narrator, Lily, only mentions her husband by name once. He’s just not that important.
That said, I could not get over the fact that this was a book about the very, very very close friendship between two women. It was well written, interesting, insightful — everything a good book should be! But it would be hard for me to recommend to anyone.
