Between Friends

Posted on: Sunday, May 11, 2008

Have we ever imagined that a story can ever be told only through letters and Journals ? Have we come across such a book where a beautiful tale of two friends is woven through the letters they share and their journals ? Well! I have. I read this book long back and forgot its name. After a lot of research i found its name and here i am writing about it.

This book ‘Between Friends’ by Debbie Macomber tells us a remarkable story said in a remarkable way. When i first got this book, I wasnt sure it would make any sense to me at all, but i am glad i brought it home and read it. This book is very special to me, because of its story as well as for the way it is said.

This is about two High School friends – ‘Jillian Lawton’ and ‘Lesley Adamski’. Their mistakes, circumstances and their destiny takes them far from each other. And they exchange letters which takes ahead the story. Lesley marries her boyfriend(who rapes her) and has three kids, Caught in her cramped life, fighting with poverty she struggles to survive, whereas Jillian finishes her degree and falls in love with Nick, who dies in a war, leaving her totally devastated. Both of them while nursing their wounds, help each other pass this phase of their lives and finally their destiny meets them with a smile.

BETWEEN FRIENDS is an insightful look at five decades of America through the eyes of two friends living totally different lifestyles as the country goes about its changing business. This book highlights the importance of Friendship between people no matter what situation you are in. I loved this book, and the way it is narrated is absolutely Brilliant. Anyone who read it ?
