The Myth of You and Me

The Myth of You and Me - Leah Stewart Reading this was...odd. It's about two women who were extremely close friends for a number of years, and then fall out because of a betrayal. Then one contacts the other after a long silence, because she is getting married. Let's just say it hit a little close to home. Stewart is a good writer. There were a few passages I found lovely and delightful. Her characters are real and vivid. I thought I was going to get through it without any swearing, but no luck--it starts up at about 3/4 of the way in. It's not gratuitous, at least, but...my feelings about that stuff being what they are, it bummed me out. Without that element, it would have been more enjoyable. But it certainly felt real. I'll be thinking about this, and forgiveness, and my resemblance to this protagonist, for a while. 3.5 stars.
