The Best of Friends by Joanna Trollope

Gina and Laurence have been the best of friends since childhoodbut they’ve never been in love. For marriage, they chose others: Fergus, who gave Gina a lovely daughter and a life of elegance and wealth; and Hilary, who helped Laurence build a cozy, successful hotel, and who counts Gina as one of her dearest friends as well. But when one of these marriages ends, the result is a shift that sends tremors through three generations and two familiesas friends become lovers, lovers become enemies, enemies become allies…and another marriage hangs in the balance. Joanna Trollope is the sort of author who “makes her readers want to drop everything in order to keep on reading” (Publishers Weekly)and The Best of Friends proves her consummate skill once again.

Ms. Trollope is so talented, and she can really get into the thoughts and feelings of the characters. I very much enjoyed reading it.

Through strong emotions the characters in this novel behave in a reasonable and noble way, redefining themselves as they define the lines of marriage, family and friendship. However, the reader is more likely to care for the situation itself (the well-being of those involved) than he is to care for the characters, who are likable but not too appealing.
