I didn't start off in love with the characters, it took me a little bit to warm up to them but once I did I found I could really did find myself wanting to know what happened next to them.
The town was interesting enough but really it was a the characters that kept me involved in the book.
Rose and Petie were flawed and lovable and very human people. Their lives, kids, friends, and loves were all very real and left me glad I had met them.
Not always a warm and fuzzy story but very uplifting and a very good take on female friendships.
