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.
