Dear Exile: The Story of a Friendship Separated (for a Year) by an Ocean (Vintage Departures) by Hilary Liftin
Dear Exile: The Story of a Friendship Separated (for a Year) by an Ocean (Vintage Departures)

A great read about true friendship and the dealings of life. Kate's letters about her and her husband's life as they work for a year in the Peace Corp contrasts Hilary's day to day troubles about men and work in the city. This read gives great perspective about the lives of two friends who share a bond that spans an ocean.

This is a wonderful short story collection. I like her short stories best of all. The title story is sweet story of finding love in a small town and finding hapiness in small moments.

Very fun book. Good writing and a fun plot -- imagine murder in a "Disney-esque" setting!
