All through childhood and adolescence, Jane, Cara, and Meg swore their friendship would stand the test of time. Nothing would come between them, they pledged. But once they hit their twenties, life got more complicated and the BFFs began to grow distant. When Jane eloped with her slick, wealthy new boyfriend and didn’t invite her oldest friends to the ceremony, the small cracks and fissures in their once rock-solid relationship became a chasm that tore them apart.
Ten years later, when her husband is arrested and publically shamed for defrauding his clients, Jane realizes her life among the one percent was a sham. Penniless and desperate, deserted by the high-society crowd who turn their surgically perfected noses up at her, she comes crawling back to her childhood friends seeking forgiveness. But Cara and Meg have troubles of their own. One of them is trapped in a bad marriage with an abusive husband, while the other can't have the one thing she desperately wants: a baby. Yet as much as they’d love to see Jane get her long overdue comeuppance, Cara and Meg won’t abandon their old friend in her time of need.
The story of three friends who find themselves on a laugh-out-loud life adventure, Lost Along the Wayilluminates the moments that make us, the betrayals that break us, and the power of love that helps us forgive even the most painful hurts.
This was a fabulous book. I absolutely fell in love with the characters, their stories and really enjoyed watching them grow as the story progressed.Jane, Cara and Meg are a great group of ladies that have known each other their whole lives, but like with so many of us they drifted apart as life circumstances overtook them. This book address so many issues including abuse, divorce, friendship, competition among women, secrets and lies. The book is told from each of the friends perspectives that will have you laughing, crying and at times really ticked off. What I adored about this book was how it did not sugar coat things, but it also showed us that coming clean and not keeping secrets from the ones you love you the most is the best way to feel secure in your relationships.
