The Best of FriendsLarge Print - 1998
Gina and Laurence had been the best of friends ever since they were teens -- but never in love. They turned to others: Gina married Fergus Bedford, an antique dealer; Laurence turned to Hilary, who helped turn his shambling inheritance into The Bee House; both a home and a small hotel.
Fergus decided that living with Gina and their daughter Sophy was no longer to his liking, so to The Bee House Gina fled. This begins a cycle of misery and heartache which ricochets through both families.
Sophy wants things to return to the way they used to be; Gus, Laurence's son, adores Sophy; Gina and Laurence discover the mystery behind their friendship, this change in dichotomy leads to a fate that will send both their marriages to the brink of betrayal.
