A Must Read for Every Woman! Oct 6, 2006
Joy Carol has done it again - a carefully researched and beautifully written book to help friends, family, colleagues, all kinds of relationships heal and avoid painful communication problems. The sisters chapter is especially powerful and I recommend this book to men as much as women.
A book to own and to give to women friends Sep 18, 2006
This gem of a book trains a steadfast gaze on a rich resource available to all women regardless of income, age, race, status, or educational background, namely, our friendships with other women. Reading it is like walking through your own home and discovering that it has been furnished all along with valuable and historically significant antiques. In a market overloaded with articles and books about "how to get and keep your man," Joy Carol wisely redirects our attention to questions of how women strengthen and nurture one another. I recommend buying at least two copies: one to keep, and one to give to friend.
Joy Carol Does It Again Sep 18, 2006
Joy Carol has hit the nail on the head....again. Relationships between women often thrive. Sometimes, sadly, women simply surive them. This wonderful new book gives us a road map to do both. Exposing both the strengths and weaknesses, rewards and risks, Ms. Carl's incisve work sheds new light on the mystery of female friendhsips...a mystery which defies time, geography and family dynamics.
Raves for latest Joy Carol book! Sep 13, 2006
Every paragraph of Joy Carol's latest book will touch a nerve in the reader. Joy has truly nailed this one! What a pleasure for me personally to be woven into Joy's FABRIC OF FRIENDSHIP since our shared childhood. I knew she was destined for greatness and also knew she'd retain her mid-western ties and traditions.
Carole Barnes-Montgomery...Nebraska poet/writer and long time friend.
I loved Joy Carols latest book Sep 1, 2006
This book was so touching and wonderful. It's the sort of book that makes one revisit and release old hurts, and to try hard not to create any new ones.I was so relieved to learn that most sisters have bouts of animosity; I can finally stop trying so hard to have an easier relationship with my older sister and just accept that this is normal.
