Friendship Matters is a story that captures the essence of friendships. It’s sincere, endearing, and entertaining.

Euniqé provides the foundation of the trio as the strong, sensible, and conservative one. She’s a widowed single mom who’s focused on raising her son to be the best man he can be. She has no time for anything else. That is until the perfect gentleman makes his interest known. Will she allow herself to love again?

Saisha is the sassiest of them all. She’s determined to live life on her terms. She entertains who she chooses, when she chooses despite Euniqé’s not so subtle advice. Saisha is on a mission to find a suitable replacement for her first love. But is it working and is she happy?

Kandace is the dutiful one who has sacrificed her dreams to support her not-so-faithful husband and his career. He provides her with endless means to shop at will and a sitter who will fill in her gaps as needed. But when her sacrifices come to a head, she has a decision to make.

Friendship Matters is a novel about three friends whose bond is so strong and their relationship so relatable, you’ll think they are a part of your circle.

By The BREWer

As a caterpillar goes out of its dark cocoon, grows its wings, and flies high up in the sky, I acknowledge my role in the entire process of the written word's metamorphosis through The Chrysalis BREW Project. I believe that beauty and goodness exist in everything and everyone - may we let that emerge and shine in each word we read, concoct, write, or share.

  1. The stories of the three friends provide a relatable plot for pretty much everyone who reads this, since loss, the question for happiness, and self-sacrifice are things most of us experience at one time or another in our lifetimes. Also, I want to applaud that the author decided to highlight women’s friendship instead of portraying the competition and rivalry that predominates in most media.
