When Kathleen Levine meets Joyce Tabachnik at the beach, each has come to a turning point in her life. Kathleen, just diagnosed with breast cancer, and Joyce, taking stock of her marriage, family and career, recognise an immediate connection. Amidst the turmoil of their own lives, they make time for each other, and through the intimacies of friendship and laughter their own choices become clear.
With wisdom and humour, Diamant, author of the hugely best-selling The Red Tent,
writes of the tragedy of loss, the destructive and restorative power of secrets and, ultimately, of the tenderness of friendship and love.
