It’s been a long time since I’ve read a “buddy” story. Beyond the Point was so much more than a story of friendship, though. How could it not be? Instead of your run of the mill fast friendship tale, the story pulls together threads from three women’s lives as they face the future (and the past) standing side by side at West Point, in the shadow of September eleventh.

This book holds a special and dear place in my heart. Though I was not at West Point (it in the military at all), I began college in 2001 with a spectacular group of women. Our entire world was shattered just a few weeks in as the nation was brought to its knees.

As I read through Beyond the Point, reliving those years in our nation’a history through fictional eyes, I was completely transported back to those moments.

Beyond the historical significance, the book stands strong in the timelessness of true friendship, working through love and loss, heart break and camaraderie in beautiful, lyrical storytelling.

I am so grateful to have been included on this tour. It was such a wonderful and welcome relief from my daily, grad school grind and I highly recommend this heartfelt escape.
