When Rachel and Claire were around six years old, they
became best friends. At that age Claire was afraid of
her own shadow. Her rich family babied and overprotected
herClaire was always over protected by
her family, something Rachel never had or understood. As the
two of them got older, Claire
moved on to the popular girls.
As life continued on for both of them, Claire never had
to worry about money. Rachel on the other hand, had to
worry about it all the time. Rachel's father left the
family after her mother became very ill, forcing Rachel to
raise her two siblings when she was just a kid herself.
After all these years, Claire returns home to find out
that Rachel now cleans her family home. Despite feeling a
huge strain between the two women, Claire and Rachel start
making up for lost time. As things get worse for Rachel,
Claire tries to get back
the friendship that they had.
Kate Hewitt books tell the story of two old friends and
how they try to get back together. This is the kind of story
that all women would enjoy. It shows the true meaning of
friendship. It also shows how when you feel that
nothing else could or would go wrong it does. I really
liked how Hewitt makes family and friendship the
best things in the world. And as long as you have a good
friend you can do anything.
