Sinopsis:

Jane wants to be married. Diana wants to run her father's newspaper. They both learn that getting what you want is not always good. Jane's ideal of a perfect marriage quickly disintegrates when her plans to fit her driven-doctor husband into the ideal fail. Diana's dream of running her father's newspaper and being a full-time career woman also vaporize under the daily details of being publisher. During a friendship from college until their forties, they survive a husband's betrayal, nearly dying in the 1968 Paris riots, learning a parent isn't what they thought, and building a business. They exchange the same Christmas card year after year with one or the other adding a single sentence summing up her life for that year. Their friendship gives them joy in the good times and strength during the bad times, as adventures take them from their days at Boston University to Florida, France, Norway, and Algeria. The constant in Jane's and Diana's lives is their friendship as they face dangers both physical and emotional.

D-L Nelson is an American writer who lives in Switzerland and Southern France.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Every Christmas, for 20 years, two former college roommates, Diana Bourque and Jane Andrews, exchange the same card, summarizing their lives that year in one sentence. The two friends couldn't be more different. Jane is domestic, and pins her hopes on becoming the wife of handsome medical student David Johnson. Diana is the adventurous one, hoping someday to take over her father's newspaper. After graduation, each woman discovers that dreams and real life often take two entirely different roads. Although men, employers, and the world in general spin out of control, Jane and Diana hold fast to the knowledge that they will always have their friendship, no matter what. As time passes, Nelson expertly captures the essence of each era with a few well-chosen, tantalizing details. Poignant and witty, this story drives home the point that although everyone's feelings and experiences seem unique, they do share universal patterns. Readers who enjoy such emotionally textured books as Iris Rainer Dart's Beaches (1985) or Kathleen Gilles Siedel's Till the Stars Fall (1994) will love Nelson's novel, too. Shelley Mosley
