Janis Arnold's good-humored second novel is about big dreams, sweet dreams, and nightmares. As we follow two friends across more than two decades and watch their dreams collide with the realities of careers, husbands, families, and aging parents, we're drawn into a warm and affirming story, a prickly testimony to the power of true friendship.
