a friend in me
A Friend in Me
How to Be a Safe Haven for Other Women
Pamela Havey Lau
Young women long for the friendship and mentoring of older women. They want a sense of community that has been missing from our friendships. But older women have begun to distance themselves from the younger women. The author has written the book to encourage and inspire older women to form friendships and become mentors to the younger women in their lives.
I was anticipating a book with steps to creating lasting friendships with women who were not in my age group. But the book was more about the thoughts on WHY women should have friendships with people who can mentor them and encouraging older women to find someone to mentor. The stories interspersed throughout the book helped move the chapters along, but for me it wasn't as helpful as I'd hoped. There will be women who will benefit from thinking about the thoughts presented in this book so I do think it has a place, it just wasn't for me.
I received this book free of charge from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest review.
