With The Friends We Keep, Holly Chamberlin introduces three friends who could be your own in a winning novel about growing up, moving on, and keeping close to those who remind us of where we've been and where we still hope to go.
In her college freshman year, Sophie Holmes met Eva Fitzpatrick and John Felitti, forging the kind of deep friendship that seemed destined to last forever. But time proved otherwise, and Sophie married and moved to Los Angeles. Now, two decades later, newly divorced and adrift, Sophie has returned to Boston, and instinctively reaches out to the people who once defined her world.
Though they've stayed in the same city, Eva and John too have grown apart. Eva is an ambitious advertising executive who favors flings over relationships. John is a dedicated lawyer wondering if he's left it too late for love and marriage. With Sophie's reappearance, their connection crackles to life once more. Just as they did long ago, the three confide their longings and secrets--until old insecurities and new betrayal threaten to shatter their bond for good.
