This is the unforgettable story of a friendship that endures decades, as two teenage friends grow into adulthood and share their sorrows and triumphs, as well as their loves and losses. Readers will feel that they're doing more than just reading a book -- they'll feel as if they're seeing the world through the eyes of two very special friends in a novel that is quite likely Hannah's best work to date.
In 1970s Washington state, Kate and Tully are best friends. They even attend the same college, and Tully vows that they will stay together as they become journalists.
But plans change when Tully's ambition exceeds Kate's. Kate's life takes another route as she marries and begins a family, while Tully's career skyrockets. Though their friendship goes through the typical strains, it endures and becomes stronger, even as Kate must face the most trying time of her life. (St. Martin's, Feb., 496 pp., $23.95)
