Conversations Between Two Great Friends relates the heart-to-hearts between two ladies of a certain age. The tenor of their discussions ranges from happy to sad, giddy to serious, philosophical to scientific. Their favorite coffee house waitperson, mysteriously mute, and a grieving ghost punctuate their conversations. Spanning from Christmas to Christmas, the reader eavesdrops on the private chats of the friends who reflect both Victorian sensibilities and twenty-first-century attitudes. Nancy L. (Nan) Reed relishes the conversations with friends that inspired these fictionalized chats. Enthused and stimulated by her own tête-à-têtes, she finds they kindle an ongoing interest and involvement with life and people.
