POSTCARDS FROM LAST SUMMER
Bailey does an excellent job of showing how the lifelong friendship between the women in the book -- even when they are estranged -- affects every other aspect of their lives. As the heroines face different obstacles on their road to happiness, Bailey wisely allows readers to see them struggle, making their successes more believable and satisfying. Unfortunately, while the female characters are well drawn, the men they become involved with are not as fully developed, so the romantic aspects are not as compelling as they could be. Overall, though, this book is definitely worth a read.
