This book could not be more different to The Red Tent. It's an enjoyable enough book though. All about the friendship between two very different women.

I loved "The Red Tent". I hope this is just as good. Thanks for my Easter treat Bookfrogster!

What a wonderful surprise! This wishlist book and another wishlist book arrived today. I can't tell you just how pleased I am. This was extremely generous of you flajol, and I really appreciate it. Thank you also for the nice postcard from World Book Day 2006. I shall keep that in my collection.

Amazon Editorial Review:
From the bestselling author of THE RED TENT come a contemporary novel that explores the burden of secrets, the weight of grief and the healing power of female friendship When Kathleen meets Joyce, each woman has come to a turning point in her life. Kathleen, whose sister died of breast cancer fifteen years earlier, has just been diagnosed herself and finds her world abruptly thrown into terrifying turmoil. While Joyce, increasingly distant from her awkward, adolescent daughter, is taking stock of her marriage and family, and struggling to get to grips with a burgeoning career as a novelist. Neither realizes that their chance meeting will result in a life-altering friendship. A mutual appreciation of books initially brings the women together and they rapidly fall into friendship, taking long walks along Good Harbor beach and talking about their lives. Piece by piece, they begin to share their personal histories and acknowledge how much they can learn from each other. But long-hidden secrets are often difficult to reveal and only after some painful soul-searching do they each come to terms with the fact that sharing those startling secrets can help them confront their emotional scars. Good Harbor is a rich and moving novel about the tragedy of loss, the insidious nature of family secrets and, ultimately, the redemptive power of friendship.

I enjoyed reading this book, although it took a while for me to get into the story. The two main characters in the story, Joyce and Kathleen, met each other and eventually formed a lovely close friendship. The story is a bit sad in places, but it has a happy ending! I gave it a 6 star rating!

It was a nice sunny day today, but bitterly cold outside. I went into Almelo town centre to meet up with my friend Pam for lunch. I had a milky coffee and a toasted cheese and ham sandwich! I forgot to take a photo of the book in Pam's hands, so all you are getting here is a photo of the coffee!

I gave the book to Pam because she is travelling back to her homeland, (New Zealand), next week, and this is a good chance for a book to travel to another far away country! So Pam will take it with her, and she might read it herself, or give it to her friend, (or there is a possibility of her doing both things)!

Whoever reads this book, whether it is Pam or her friend, then I hope you will leave a journal entry here to say that you have the book, and then again later, after you have read it to say what you thought of it, and whether you are going to keep it or release it again. I hope you enjoy it! I often insert something inside books I release. This time I put in a postcard, a bookmark and a car park ticket from Chelmsford, Essex in England! (Somewhere on the internet there is a website dedicated to the things found inside books, and this was my inspiration!) BookCrossing is great fun, and it's free!

If you are reading here, then I want to tell you that this is a. FREE . book, and there are no catches! It is now yours! Please read on.....
If you are the finder of this book it would be nice if you could leave a message here to say that you have it. Do not worry because I don't want the book back. It is yours to keep if you want it. I just want to know it is now in safe hands.
