To My Dearest Friends by Patricia Volk

Alice and Nanny have never met before, but they have one thing in common: their late friend Roberta. Alice is the prim proprietor of a chic Madison Avenue shop, while Nanny is a sharp-eyed Manhattan real-estate broker. This New York odd couple is thrown together when Roberta trusts them with her last request—that together they open her safe-deposit box. What they find inside compels these women to address a surprising truth about their beloved Roberta. A profound yet hilarious novel, To My Dearest Friends is the story of two women and a journey of friendship neither chose to take.

While Ms. Volk’s writing is exceptionally lyrical and lovely to read, the book contains much too much sex and sex talk for my taste.

2 Stars (Rated R – too much sex)
