When their friend Rachel dies unexpectedly, Kate, Sarah and Jo are left in deep grief. The last thing Rachel says to them is left in a letter with on last request to each of the women. Each woman’s request is different and each sets them on a path of change and self discovery. The letters impact their lives, changing them forever and giving each a new outlook and understanding of life.

The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship was an exquisite read. I was instantly drawn to each character. I loved each of them and felt personally and emotionally connected to them by the end. I couldn’t wait to find out what each friend was asked to do, as well as discover the effects it would have on them. It made me wonder if Rachel knew what could happen of if she simply knew they needed a general push to jump start their transformation.

The writing in this debut novel was smooth and honest. Emotionally Raw, it tugs at your deepest of emotions because each character is so real and genuine. I mourned their loss, felt their discomfort and rejoiced in their triumphs. The story was beautifully told. I would recommend this one. If you love fiction, this is fiction at it’s best. I really enjoyed reading it. It will remain part of my permanent library.
