Despite having jobs and men that they love, each knows that something is missing: the closeness that once sustained them. Carmen is a successful actress in New York, engaged to be married, but misses her friends. Lena finds solace in her art, teaching in Rhode Island, but still thinks of Kostos and the road she didn’t take. Bridget lives with her longtime boyfriend, Eric, in San Francisco, and though a part of her wants to settle down, a bigger part can’t seem to shed her old restlessness.
Then Tibby reaches out to bridge the distance, sending the others plane tickets for a reunion that they all breathlessly await. And indeed, it will change their lives forever—but in ways that none of them could ever have expected.
As moving and life-changing as an encounter with long-lost best friends, Sisterhood Everlasting is a powerful story about growing up, losing your way, and finding the courage to create a new one
I didn't even know about this book until it suddenly appeared on the shelf at the only place I can buy books here. I was surprised and intrigued but didn't want to spend 26$ on a book if I wasn't sure it would be ok. I went home and walked around on twitter to get an opinion and everyone seemed so torn by this book. Needless to say, I went back and bought the book, took it home, and read it. I both loved and hated it, as I have heard many people did.
There are a lot of things going on in this book, I can't give much detail except that one crucial thing happens at the almost very beginning of the book that changes the complete mood for the rest of the story. I had such a sunny and positive outlook for this book but once that happened...it was just about the recovery of the story. I really can't say more without spoilers.
I love the women that the girls have become and I loved learning their inner workings in this book even better than I did before and I have to say one event in particular made me say...freaking finally. So...I don't think you will disappointed if you read this book but...be prepared for a shock.
