Three different people and three totally different personalities are the best way to describe childhood friends, Emily, Zoe and Shannon. When we meet these women, Emily is a sweet, fragile person who has some issues with her mental health. Zoe is a fun, free-spirited blonde whose goal is to become an actress in New York City. Shannon is a serious, tall and athletic person who is leaving to attend the Air Force Academy. We also meet Jack, the man who loves all three women and is a faithful friend to each one. This moving book takes us through their lives and shows how love, family and friendship is so important to us all. Great, well-developed characters and a solid, emotional story made this an excellent four stars for me.
