Sweet and bitter - not much sour. Told by 2 mature women, it's a long story of a friendship begun in college, but smoothly and well-told. Each woman has a distinctive voice, both articulate and vividly descriptive. Lisa's description of leaving the Nashville super hospital, like "orphan's of the storm" sounded like a grey landscape peopled by zombies. Janie's spell-breaker: "I want a bagel!",
No spoilers in this review - the story is not over, but that is part of any memoir - you don't know how it ends.
