I absolutely loved Friends and Strangers! I have read most of this author’s previous books, The Engagements being one of my favorite books in general. I love how the two female characters in Friends and Strangers, Elisabeth and Sam, were so well developed and so real. I am older than the two of them, but reflected back to when I was their ages. I made some poor and unselfish choices and decisions then, but not quite to the magnitude as they did. I think this book helps to put those instances in context and makes us realize that we are going to continue to face challenges as we go through life. Hopefully we learn from those challenges.
This book is a light beach read, but will definitely give you something to chew on if you’re looking for a deeper read this summer. - Rosanna (Admin)
