This novel will resonate with readers whether or not they ever pledged a sorority. If they have, descriptions of college sorority life will bring smiles and nods of recognition. All readers will relate to the development and maintenance of friendships that are nurtured over the years. Welch’s novel will make readers laugh, cry and long for a group of friends that stick together through thick and thin.
Four women join a sorority in 1975, each for her own unique reason. Laurie’s home life has been distant, and she would love friends to be as close as family. Diane is beautiful and confident, but struggling to live up to family expectations. Karen is following her mother’s lead for the correct path in life. Ellen is just looking for a good time and friends to go along with it. Over the course of their college careers and into the future, these four women discover the meaning of true friendship and what sisterhood, even if not by blood, is all about.
