Three convent school girls make a promise to care for each other. They go their separate ways, grow into womanhood and try to find love and happiness until a mad man's actions bring them back together to fulfill their childhood promise. Old money, secrets, revenge, suspense, illicit love, women hurling toward a predetermined destiny.
Praise for Best Friends:
"Consuelo Baehr is a very talented novelist. She not only writes lovely prose, but she keeps you turning the pages, heart thumping, to see what will happen next." Rona Jaffe, author of The Best of Everything and Class Reunion
“Worth curling up under the covers with.” The Washington Post
“A pleasure to read . . . fascinating, extraordinary women…I wished they were my best friends.” Susan Isaacs, author of Compromising Positions, Shining Through
“Plenty of sex … It’s a good read.”
It was unlikely they would ever meet. Yet fate brought them together first as naïve schoolgirls . . . then as complicated women facing events that would alter the shape of their lives forever.
NATALIE– betrayed by her first love and consoling herself with the richest husband in America who is both powerful and dangerous.
SARA – buried her ambitions until a blazing passion reminds her of all she has given up. Her suburban security is about to be shattered by a new job and a passionate affair.
MIRANDA – exotically beautiful, dangerously trusting and driven by her own sexuality. She is in love with a famous screenwriter whose scenario doesn’t include a wife.
Three women with little in common . . . except a pledge made when they were children when they knew nothing about what life would bring . . . a pledge they will be called upon to keep.
