About this product
- DescriptionMarilyn French's seven million copy best seller The Women's Room crystallised the issues that ignited the women's movement. Now the acclaimed author updates that classic with a new exploration of the truths and realities behind women's lives. In the Name of Friendship illuminates how the women's movement changed the lives of women as well as men. Set in the Berkshire mountains of western Massachusetts, this wise vel is a group portrait of four disparate women who forge life-altering friendships despite personalities that vary as greatly as their vocations and ages. The vel weaves together a series of family crises with the friendships that help the four women refashion their lives.
