The Friendship List
The Friendship List is the wonderful story about two best friends since childhood, Ellen and Unity, who have gone through life ups and downs with each other by their sides. Now in their mid-thirties, Ellen’s son, Coop, is ready to go off to college, and Ellen overhears him worrying about leaving her. As a single mom who had Coop when she was only seventeen, this makes Ellen sad since she doesn’t want to hold him back. Unity, on the other hand, is childless, mainly because she the love of her life, Stuart, was killed in the line of duty three years ago, and she has never let go. The best friends decide to make a list of things they would like to accomplish and call it the friendship list.
I absolutely loved the story in its entirety. It was not lost on me, however, that halfway through the book there really wasn’t too much mention of the so-called list and both friends were up to their knees in emotional drama. The characters in this book are all very lovable including the Coach, the gorgeous Thaddeus, Coop, Coach’s daughter Lissa, and Thaddeus’ meddling but oh-so-wonderful aunt Dagmar. I also loved the creativity when it came to the names. Overall, this book had many life lessons we could all learn from. A beautiful story with a bit of laughter, a pinch of sorrow, and a squeeze of uneasiness as the characters all work together.
