Debbie Macomber tells the story of a remarkable friendship -- and tells it in a remarkable way. Between Friends is a story in which every woman will recognize herself . . . and her best friend.

The friendship between Jillian Lawton and Lesley Adamski begins in the postwar era of the 1950s. As they grow up, their circumstances, their choices -- and their mistakes -- take them invirtually opposite directions. Lesley gets pregnant and marries young, living a cramped life defined by the demands of small children, not enough money, an unfaithful husband. Jillian lives those years on a college campus shaken by the Vietnam War and then as an idealistic young lawyer in New York City.

Over the years and across the miles, through marriage, children, divorce and widowhood, Jillian and Lesley remain close, sharing every grief and every joy. There are no secrets between friends . . .

Debbie Macomber's greatest strength is describing the friendships between women. I read this story, told entirely through correspondence between best friends from grade school through their married lives, progressing from notes passed at school, through letters, to email and instant messaging. I immediately sent a copy to my best friend from age 8. Now in our 70s and living hundreds of miles apart, we spent a day together last year. without missing a beat. If you like this book, also read Debbie's Changing Habits, another wonderful tale of feminine friendship.
