Her sincere, genuine prose elevates the ordinary, embracing situations and events that have shaped her characters’ lives and our own.Eddleston’s new memoir, My Three Friends, tells the story of four young girls who come together in the city of Portland, Oregon in the 1950’s. Without a false note, she describes the choices, successes, trials, tragedies and most of all, enduring friendship of four women, framed by the events of the decades they grow up in.From a third grader’s demand, “Why me? It’s your brother’s pigeon coop,” though broken arms and broken hearts, separations and reunions, and a last walk on a beach, My Three Friends reminds the reader what it was like to be young … and to grow together. Although these women came of age in the 1950s and ‘60s, their experiences and responses to them are universal, so much so that even today’s teenagers will appreciate the book’s characters and their story.In addition to a photo album which puts faces to the names and places the reader comes to know, the book also includes an epilogue of follow-up anecdotes and events. Eddleston has wisely provided a study guide for book clubs.
