Set in a small town in Massachusetts, Next to Love follows three childhood friends whose lives are unmoored when their men are called to duty in World War II. The changes thrust upon Babe, Millie, and Grace move them in directions they never dreamed possible - while their husbands and boyfriends are enduring their own transformations. As they change, so does America. And yet the three friends remain bonded by their past even as their children grow up and a new society rises from the ashes of the war.

This book reminded me a bit of The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society. I loved the characters and it was such a pleasure to read. I also loved the author's use of the complexity of marriage. Not an action packed book. Just quiet and pleasurable.

This is not my usual kind of book but once I got into it I couldn't put it down. Brought back many memories of my own early years. Really enjoyed the writing and am anxious to read more by this author.
