In these stories, friendships begin, end, and endure, despite hardship and separation. We see friendships in childhood and old age, those that are brief and those that last lifetimes - and beyond. Common themes and issues emerge, even as the stories reflect women's diversity. These stories show us not only the many roles of friendship but also the conditions and concerns of women's lives through changing historical circumstances. We see rituals for comfort and celebration, patterns of mutual support, and reciprocal enhancement of self-esteem. We find what is unique about women's friendship - the affirmation of appetites and ambitions, the sharing of laughter and joy, and the mutual reflection of women's best selves.
