I received a copy of The Gift of Friendship: Stories that
Celebrate the Beauty of Shared Moments edited by Dawn Camp, from the publisher
in exchange for an honest review.
The Gift of Friendship is a collection of essay type short
stories written by numerous different authors. Each author shares their own
experiences throughout their lives with friends and friendships. Some will make
the reader laugh, cry and smile. Many of the situations wrote about are very
relatible and heartwarming.
I found that many of these stories were geared towards busy
mothers in need of a caring friend. Although I don’t fall into that specific
set I was able to relate to many of the things mentioned throughout The Gift of
Friendship. In fact I had quite a profound reading experience as I made my way
through the pages. Although it is fairly short and quick to read, I really took
time to reflect on each lesson. It also made me reminisce about friendships
past and present.
Along with its inviting cover showing two chairs by a lake,
the book as a whole was put together beautifully. Editor and author Dawn Camp
is also a photographer and included some of her own pictures to accompany the
The Gift of Friendship really would make for a nice gift. I
would recommend it to those who enjoy reading heartwarming relatable stories.
