Martha Moody's national bestsellera compassionate and tender novel about best friends from college. A testament to the power of female friendship. When Clare Mann arrives at Oberlin in 1973, shes never met anyone like Sally Rose. Rich and beautiful, Sally is utterly foreign to a middle-class, Midwestern Protestant like Clareand utterly fascinating. The fascination only grows when Sally brings her home to L.A. Mr. Rosecharismatic, charming, and owner of a profitable business shrouded in secreyis nearly as compelling a figure to Clare as he is to his own daughter. California seems like paradise after winters in Ohio. And Clare begins to look forward desperately to these visits, to carefree rides in Sallys Kharmann Ghia and lazy poolside days. As the years pass, Clare becomes a doctor and Sally a lawyer, always remaining roommates at heart, a plane ride or phone call away. Marriages and divorces and births and deaths do not separate them. But secrets mightfor as Clare watches, the Rose family begins to self-destruct before her eyes. And the things she knows are the kinds of things that no one wants to tell a best friend.

#TBRtemptation post! In this debut novel, we meet two women--Clare from working-class Ohio, and Sally from wealthy Los Angeles--who become college roommates and remain life-long friends despite their stark differences. Sally has a seemingly perfect family & robust law practice. Clare has a stressful practice as a doctor specializing in AIDS. Clare vacations in CA, and witnesses the implosion of the family she's admired. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

MyNamesParadise Whoa!! Sounds really good but never heard of it!! Thanks!! 6y
