(157)Between Friends by Kristy Kiernan

Between Friends is a novel that has been all over the blogosphere. With fairly positive reviews. I have been meaning to read it for a while, but never got around to cracking the spine until this weekend. Let me warn you, Between Friends is an emotional roller coaster.

Cora & Ali have been lifelong friends. Closer than friends really, like sisters. Cora even gave Ali and her husband Benny the ultimate gift. She provided the embryos for Benny & Ali's miracle daughter, Letti. But fifteen years have gone by and Cora has been absent for awhile when she returns to the neighborhood. Everything is not as blissful as she had hoped for her best friend and the rest of their family. Will their friendship survive the test of time and the tragedies that get thrown their way?

Between Friends is the type of book that emphasizes the belief that family doesn't always have to share blood. Ali and Cora have had that type of relationship forever. And it was one of those relationships where they don't speak for long periods of time, for whatever reason, but when they meet back up it is as if no time has passed. Their friendship is tested by some huge events, and how they work through that is what this book is all about.

I really enjoyed Between Friends. The story was absorbing, but it was a bit emotionally draining. Prepare yourself for tears, because I guarantee they will come.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
