    This reminded me somewhat of the revelation I once had that, had I lived in the 60s and 70s, I probably wouldn’t not have been at Woodstock, or a hippy, or revolutionary at all. It was a disappointing realization b/c I think we tend to think that if we were alive during ‘history’ we’d be a part of it…

    Is the friendship of the women a main part of the story? The title seems to suggest it would be but your summary focused on Rebecca.

    • Rebecca was the narrator so it followed her more even though it was about their friendship. The truth is I can’t really reveal the more important aspects of their relationship without giving away the whole book. Some of these choices made it an extremely difficult book to review because I had A LOT of thoughts about some of those major plot points that occur at the very end of the book. I’d be happy to share those with you one-on-one. 😉
