Chosen by Rachel
A 1987 novel about the friendship between two couples and their entwined journeys through the pleasures and cruelty of life.
✎ “There is no description that does this book justice. Ultimately it is a character study of two couples who are so expertly written it’s as if they exist. Whether they are endearing and selfless or opinionated and maddening, they are magical, carefully crafted people who reflect the reality of real life situations and friendships. Stegner has a flawless, enchanting writing style and I knew from the first page I was going to fall in love with this story.” – Rachel
