The Friends We Keep + Giveaway
Evvie, Maggie, and Topher have known each other since university. Their friendship was something they swore would last forever. Now years have passed, the friends have drifted apart, and none of them ever found the lives they wanted – the lives they dreamed of when they were young and everything seemed possible.
Evvie starved herself to become a supermodel but derailed her career by sleeping with a married man.
Maggie married Ben, the boy she fell in love with at university, never imagining the heartbreak his drinking would cause.
Topher became a successful actor but the shame of a childhood secret shut him off from real intimacy.
By their thirtieth reunion, these old friends have lost touch with each other and with the people they dreamed of becoming. Together again, they have a second chance at happiness… until a dark secret is revealed that changes everything.
The Friends We Keep is about how despite disappointments we’ve had or mistakes we’ve made, it's never too late to find a place to call home.
Out of the three friends, Evvie, Maggie, and Topher; my favorite was Topher with Evvie and Maggie coming in a close second together.
Topher's story kind of snuck up on me as to how sweet and sad it was at the same time. Therefore, I was really cheering for him to find his happy ending. Plus, I like how his character was portrayed in this book. He was not in my face. He is like the best guy friend that a woman would want to have around.
Of the three friends, Evvie and Maggie's stories were connected together. Evvie's secret is what drove a wedge between the two and also shaped their lives in the present. However, it was not all doom and gloom. There was a happy ending for both women as well.
Fans of Jane Green or other contemporary women's books will enjoy reading this book and getting to know Evvie, Topher, and Maggie as I did. So grab a blanket, your sunglasses, and find a perfect reading spot as you read The Friends We Keep.
