Ali and Cora have been friends since high school. Over the years, their friendship matured and the two women become tight like sisters. So it was only natural for Cora to donate her eggs when Ali was unable to conceive.
Fast forward to present time. Ali and Benny have a beautiful daughter Letty. Ali is extremely thankful for the gift of life Cora gave to her. In fact, she has it documented on her bedroom wall, aka "The Miracle Wall". Now that Letty is older and growing into a young woman, Ali cannot deny her desire to have another baby. She did preserve the remaining embryos in case she wanted to be pregnant again. And that time has come.
Benny, her husband, isn't as enthusiastic about having another child. If it were five years ago, then yes he would have agreed immediately. Now, things have changed. And bringing another child into the world is something he's not so sure of. Ali also needs to tell Cora. After all, the embryos are hers and she doesn't want to have the procedure until speaking with Cora first.
Cora has a secret of her own. A secret that she's not ready to share. Even with Ali. She's aware that time is no longer on her side and decides she must face this life-altering decision and returns home cope and tell Ali.
Between Friends is friendship at its best. Ali and Cora represent the true meaning of "I will do anything for you". Yes the woman argue and don't always agree, but deep down their friendship is real and solid. If you're looking for a good women's fiction novel, look no further. Between Friends is filled with intricate themes that causes the reader to feel a variety of emotions throughout the novel. It's a fantastic read, one I highly recommend.
