From the Publisher:
What happens when the loyalty that defines the friendship of two women is tested? For Mia and Danielle, finding the answer takes a lifetime.
Mia Marks was an independent black girl from inner-city Detroit with an eye for the hottest fashions and a penchant for the good life. Danielle King was a soft-spoken suburban white girl with artistic ambitions. When they met at an all-girls Catholic high school, neither expected to form a deep bond that transcended race and background and lasted for years. And neither could have anticipated the one indiscretion that destroyed their friendship.
Twenty years later, Danielle is a successful novelist living in Miami. Mia is a schoolteacher in Detroit. But they’re still on common ground. Both are unhappily married and raising teenage daughters, and both are far to proud to make the first move to reconnect-until tragedy brings them back together in the most unexpected way.
Now they must confront the past, discover its untold truths, and learn to survive the increasing complexities of their lives and of a friendship destined to endure.
Remember Me by Cheryl Robinson is a heartrending and inspiring tale of friendship, guilt, tragedy and making amends. Told in alternating time periods between the late 1970s/early 1980s and present day, Robinson captures her characters, Mia and Danielle, in their purest forms as they meet as teens and then later as they are brought back together as grown, married, and not particularly happy, women. Readers will delight in the author’s tale of how Mia, brought up in Detroit, befriends Danielle, brought up in the suburbs, when they both enter a private, all-girls high school. Believing that friendship has no bounds by the beautifully powerful bond that Robinson builds between these two girls, readers will find out the true limits of this bond when a moment of poor judgment destroys what they had mutually constructed. In present day, a devastatingly heartbreaking accident provides the catalyst that ultimately causes these two women, now living separate, and disconnected lives, to overcome the barrier that had been erected so long in the past. A truly inspiring story about the strength people draw from friendships, the forces that bring two people, whose bond was broken beyond what seemed possible to repair, back together, and the enduring power of redemption, I recommend Remember Me by Cheryl Robinson to readers looking for an emotionally moving drama.
