What was the meaning of the book?

Julie I think this is not a "meaning book", but a book about a complex friendship between two women over the course of more than fifty years. It starts when the girls a about five years old and the series ends when they are in their 60s. During that time they shift from best friends to rivals to enemies and back to friends again. If you've ever had a friendship, or a sibling, with a relationship like this, the series may resonate with you. But I do understand that it is not for everyone.
