Nothing is more comforting than the gift of friendship when the storms of life rage. The concept of a storm sister is immediately clear to women, and the response is either the joy of experiencing that kind of relationship, or the longing to experience it. Publishing veteran Afton Rorvik paints a beautiful picture of the characteristics of a friendship that is there in all seasons of life, including the storms. Through poignant personal stories and the stories of others, Afton covers topics as diverse as resisting the urge to fix a friends problems, rejoicing with those who rejoice, and the fine art of listening well.
