Review: A Forgiven Friend by by Sue Featherstone and Susan Pape

December 2, 2019

About the book

Friendship will always come first.

There’s only one way out from rock bottom and that’s up, and Teri Meyer is finally crawling out from the worst time of her life – no thanks to her best friend Lee. But no matter, she’s finally found love – real love with a real man, a successful man, a man who accepts all her flaws. Teri’s never felt like this before, and yet it’s changing her in ways she doesn’t understand.

And there’s only one person who can help, one person who truly understands Teri.

It seems that no matter how hard Lee Harper tries, there’s a battle awaiting her at every turn these days, and she’s tired. And as if she needs the extra stress, Teri continues to create constant and unnecessary drama. But Lee’s the only one who really knows what’s going on under Teri’s hard, convoluted exterior, and that’s why she’s always been there for her.

But the question is: will Teri be there when Lee needs her most?

My Thoughts

Noooooooo, it’s the final book in the series! Ah, but what an enjoyable one. Honestly, Teri and Lee drive me mad but it is thoroughly entertaining to find out what incredible shenanigans they have gotten up to now. This is a terrific end to a series. (But I still want to know what happens to them next – the sign of excellent storytelling).

I simply love the way moments are told from differing points of view – and I never know who is actually telling the truth of a story – as from their own points of view – they are perfectly correct. It’s fabulous insight into how two people who know each other extremely well… don’t really know each other at all. It’s a brilliant insight into friendship and the trials and suffering that comes from them, and it shows how the memory and recall of an incident – any incident – is really subjective depending on the point of view.

It certainly makes me wonder what my friends really think of me!

The pacing of the story rockets along as more and more hi-jinks occur. Honestly, I cannot believe the trouble they get themselves into. The love lives and working lives of these two women and their emotional journey, shows ultimately, the real meaning of friendship. A terrific read.

Clever writing and a clever story. I’m a bit heartbroken that it is now at an end.
