I really enjoyed this book, despite the fact that the mere description on the back of the book screamed "CHICK LIT!!!!!!!!!!!" to me and I usually don't tend to go for those books (with the exception of Emily Giffin, and now, it seems, Kristin Hannah too). I started reading it though and could not put it down. It wasn't a particularly memorable story, and it was kind of cheesy and predictable at times. The thing is that I didn't start reading the book expecting anything besides a predictable chick lit story. The book I read prior to this was The Blue Notebook and the subject matter on that book was child sex slavery so I really needed a light hearted read after that! This proved to be a (mostly) light-hearted and fun read about a friendship between two very different women throughout their 30 year friendship. There is laughter and tears, ups and downs, fighting and making up. The devotion that Kate and Tully have to each other is very touching.
I do have to admit I didn't really understand what the deal was with Johnny's feelings for Tully and I wish that had been better explained, but overall it was a fun read about a long-lasting true female friendship.

Amie Ditto to pretty much everything you've said. I was also a little unfulfilled with the way Johnny's deep-down feelings were never explained, but I guess that's part of the fun of reading a novel like this, it's open to your interpretation and gives you something to think about after you've finished the book.
