the girls from Ames

This book I’m reading is by Jeffrey Zaslow. It’s about a group of eleven gals, most of whom have known each other since early childhood. The story follows them into adulthood. The tale unfolds as to how they maintain their friendship even though they have scattered geographically.
It demonstrates something else that’s telling. Several research projects have shown that men’s and women’s friendships differ greatly. Recent studies show that women who have long-term friendships live longer and are healthier. Those with the most friends outlived those with the least friends by twenty-two per cent.

June Poucher (May’11) adds, “This tale brings to mind ‘Julie’s Circle’– my own group of women friends.  Though some of us have scattered across the USA, our friendships remain strong.”
