“A valentine to the staying power of women’s friendships.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer
”[A] terrific novel.”—Redbook
“First novels that track a pair of friends from college days through their subsequent lives aren’t exactly uncommon, but Moody’s is so freshly observed and gifted with such a powerful sense of the ravages of time that it feels utterly new…The book never loses its edge, at once compassionate and humorous, nor its moving conviction that a strong friendship between women can be one of life’s most powerful relationships.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
”Moody is brilliant at exposing just how emotionally and morally complex a friendship can be.”—Diane Vreuls, author of Are We There Yet?
“She captures the feel of things, the complexity of human lives, and the ability of time to expose and to heal.”—Josephine Humphreys, author of Nowhere Else on Earth
