Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alice and Nanny have never met before, but they have one thing in common: their late friend Roberta. Alice is the prim proprietor of a chic Madison Avenue shop, while Nanny is a sharp-eyed Manhattan real-estate broker. This New York odd couple is thrown together when Roberta trusts them with her last request—that together they open her safe-deposit box. What they find inside compels these women to address a surprising truth about their beloved Roberta. A profound yet hilarious novel, To My Dearest Friends is the story of two women and a journey of friendship neither chose to take.

Synopsis:

From the critically acclaimed author of "Stuffed" comes a rich, generous novel that has a lot to say about the complexity of friendship, the use and abuse of secrets, and the restorative power of love--"O, The Oprah Magazine."
