Descrizione

From the time they were young, Gayle and Patricia were raised like sisters, as close as two friends could be. But they each had dreams that would take them far away - and far away from each other.

Gayle was the beauty who believed that a man could make her life complete. Patricia was the intellectual who thought that rising to the top of her career would make her happy. And then there is Marcus Carter, who has been linked to both Gayle and Pat since the tragedy that occurred when they were all children. Can either one save him from himself? Can friends survive a love that comes between them? Each of them gets what she wants, but no one counts on the price they have to pay.

When they realize that dreams can be hollow and love has its cost, they learn the most important lessons of all: to never give up on the people who love you, and that it isn't just blood that makes two people sisters.

    I discovered the authors on Library thing and their book was recommended to me by LT based on my reading choices listed. First off, you do not need to be an African American to enjoy this book about friendship and family.I am old white woman and read the book for the characters and the story. The story centers around two young woman who have a bond based on circumstances and a tragedy. My favorite character is Pat who was raised by her Grandmother when her mother left her and took off for the big city. After her Granmother dies is shipped to live with her Aunt. The Aunt is her last living relative who feels she is "stuck" with Pat. When social services deem that her Aunt, Pat is put into foster care. Gale, Pat's best convinces her parents to take Pat into their houseshold and they do.Pat is an intelligent and driven young lady who knows that a college eduction will change her life. When Pat is offer a scholarship to a prep school, Gale feels abandon.Gale cannot understand why Pat needs to attend college.I do not want to spoil the story for you but highly recommend this book to all those girlsfriends out in LibraryThing.

    Friendships growing together and apart plus the curve balls of life... relatable, down to earth characters, with drama filled stories.

    This story is about two friends that grew up together and then lost contact with each other. Their lives took turns that they hadn’t planned on but eventually, they found each other.Gale was the prissy girl who seemed to get her way on everything. She was spoiled and everything was always about her. Patricia didn’t have what Gale had but was glad that Gale was her friend. But Patricia soon realized that Gale was all about herself.Gale married Ramsey Hilliard and they had a daughter, Vanessa. Ramsey seemed like a good guy and he probably was but that demon, Gambling, took over his life and he staged his own suicide so that he could remain in hiding from being in so much debt from gambling. This left Gale and Vanessa with nothing and they ended up in a shelter where Patricia came back in contact with Gale.Patricia found out who her father was and he didn’t want to have anything to do with her. Patricia was also doing really well at her job but from no where, she was let go and since her job was her life, she didn’t know what else to do. Marcus Carter, a childhood friend came back into Patricia’s life and they ended up getting married.It took me a while to get through this book but it was pretty good.
