This was a beautiful story of friendship, love, and the ups and downs of living. We meet three women, Goldie, Jocelyn, and Krystal who are at different points in their lives, and yet each have their own struggles and issues.
The characters in this story were stand-outs for me. They are real and heartbreaking at times, but they are redeemable, and they created a beautiful story for readers! As their stories begin to intertwine, I found myself incredibly invested.
This story creates a supportive atmosphere that makes the strength of friendship shine through. I would recommend this for readers that enjoy women’s stories of life.
