It was unlikely they would ever meet. Yet fate brought them together first as naïve schoolgirls . . . then as complicated women facing events that would alter the shape of their lives forever.
NATALIE– betrayed by her first love and consoling herself with the richest husband in America who is both powerful and dangerous.
SARA – buried her ambitions until a blazing passion reminds her of all she has given up. Her suburban security is about to be shattered by a new job and a passionate affair.
MIRANDA – exotically beautiful, dangerously trusting and driven by her own sexuality. She is in love with a famous screenwriter whose scenario doesn’t include a wife.
Three women with little in common . . . except a pledge made when they were children when they knew nothing about what life would bring . . . a pledge they will be called upon to keep.
Best Friends by Consuelo Saah Baehr is the story of three girls who meet while attending St. Mildred’s academy for girls. As most young girls do, they make a promise to each other to remain best friends no matter what, until things suddenly change when Sara unexpectedly has to leave the school because of her father’s passing. The book jumps ahead to tell the separate stories of the three women who did not keep in touch as promised and how they have grown on their own as strong women. Even though all three women have certainly had their share of heartache, their lives are still intertwined even though they may not realize it at the time. Best Friends is written in such a way that you are pulled in and can relate to the circumstances in at least one of the women’s stories, if not all three. This book reminds us about the value of friendship and how even though friends may spend years apart, they are still willing to sacrifice everything to help a friend. You will experience friendship, love, pain, and loss along with Natalie, Sara, and Miranda from the beginning to the heart wrenching end! Best Friends does contain adult material best suited for mature audiences that are ages 18 and over.
