Overview

"Friendship is going ahead with no map on a journey full of twisty turns, loop-de-loops, dead ends and detours. Allow for ups and downs. Have some play in your steering wheel," writes author Sandy Gingras. With her trademark whimsy and delightful artwork, we see how precious a good friendship really is. We always knew this, of course, but Sandy Gingras gives us reason to believe again. We remember that:

• Friends "commit to some common ground but blossom into difference."
• Friends "bond on daring adventures" and "savor sweet silences."
• Friends "forgive with grace" and "know when to let things slide."
• Friends "know when a little nudge can be a big help" and "light a way home when life gets dark."

This book is part of the author's delightful ''How To Live'' series, and embraces her themes of simplicity, appreciation, love and happiness.

This charming and illustrated gift book is a thank you to friends and acts of friendship everywhere — for the way they brighten the world and steer our lives more toward heart."
