Best Friends in Novels and Life

best friends 2Do you have a best friend? Or best friends? There’s probably that person from grammar school or that you played with since preschool. Or a high school bestie. I can’t forget my college crew and then the ones from church and my adult life as I moved around. Still out of all the possibilities, I only have a few that are really my best friends–huge blessings in my life!

elizabeth and charlotte in p and p (2)In my novels in the Revolutionary Faith Series, my heroine has a best friend, one she met when she moved from Boston to Charles Town. So, their friendship is only a few years old but strong and permanent. Although they share some common characteristics, the young women have different temperaments, goals, and dreams. Remember Elizabeth and Charlotte from Pride and Prejudice?

darcy and bingleyHow about Darcy and Bingley? My hero Louis crosses an ocean with not one friend to welcome him in the New World. He does make a quick business partner friend and connects with Samuel, who becomes his confidant. These men stick by Louis and become as close as brothers in a short time.

best friendsWhether for years or for days, friends make a difference in our lives. I’m thankful for the ones who accept me just as I am and want the best for me. Not to say, friends don’t have their moments of honest words or criticism but usually words meant to help and improve the friendship and the individuals.

I hope you enjoy the friendships between Elizabeth and Sarah and Louis and Samuel.

Do you have a best friend? For how long? For my best friends out there, I’m thankful for your continued influence on my life.

Siblings in Fiction (and Life)

IMG_0699Do you like reading fiction that has a protagonist with siblings? Well, I do probably because I have three sisters who are now my best friends. I’m sure some people who do not have siblings have friends or cousins who are as close as sisters or brothers. Anyway, I love reading and writing about the dynamics of family. Siblings expand the depth of the characters. I know my siblings have added levels of purpose and blessings to my life.

I have a motto for my siblings–From cradle to grave. I read that somewhere years ago and have found it to be so very true. We shared our nursery years, and we are in this life together until death. Our journey is forever linked. My sisters have added other sayings that appear on my shelves. Here are two: “Back off! I have a sister and I’m not afraid to use her.” “Sister love isn’t made out of cupcakes and glitter. More like steel and a set of snow tires. It went the extra mile a long while back, and it’s not going to quit. Not tomorrow, not ever.”

IMG_3691Therefore, in my novels I like to throw in a few siblings to spice things up a bit. In the Revolutionary Faith series, Elizabeth has an older sister Anne and a younger brother George. Can you guess which one gives her more trouble? I won’t tell. She also has a best friend Sarah who steps in as a sister, sharing the bond as sisters do.

Louis, in the same series, has two brothers in France. Being the middle child, he finds an ocean apart is the best way to exist with his brothers. Only through time will the rifts begin to mend.

little womenIn fiction my favorite sisters are the March girls from Little Women–four sisters facing the world. I can relate. And I wouldn’t change a thing about my own sisters! True darlings with extremely loving and forgiving hearts.

Join my characters on a journey with their families–siblings, parents, children, friends. The four books continue to emphasize the importance of the bonds of love. Hold Me Close, Surround Me, Bring Me Near, and now Draw Me to Your Side.

Do you have siblings or friends as close as siblings?
