Between Friends, Part One

by Julie Kusma

Excerpt:

Don’t think it strange I’ve left you this letter, but the first two days without you were terrible. I understand. Our lives are busy, and we usually play phone tag when we try to reach each other. I’m sure I would miss you if I had a signal and tried to call. I wanted to celebrate with you. Continue reading Between Friends, Part One here.


Between Friends, Part Two

by Jill Yoder

Excerpt:

Jackie, my friend!

Are we ever going to come together in the same place? It seems as though life is playing ping-pong with us. Anyhow, even though you had to cancel your trip to Pierre this time, I decided to keep my scheduled vacation and explore our “home away from home.” I figure I’ll fill you in on my stay. I’m going to write something every day while I’m here—you know, the most exciting things. Continue reading Between Friends, Part Two here.


Between Friends, Part Three

by Julie Kusma

Excerpt:

Dearest Jean,  

I apologize I couldn’t meet you last month. Mark took ill so quickly; I was afraid to leave him alone. My girls, of course, were too busy with their own families to be bothered with their parents.

Between Friends, Part Four

Excerpt:

My dear Jackie,

I almost canceled my trip to Pierre after you phoned me to say you couldn’t make the trip. I ultimately opted to make my way to our cottage anyway and decided to stay two weeks this time. It’s hard to believe our bad luck—never able to meet up at our quaint home at the same time. Continue reading Between Friends, Part Four here.


Between Friends, Part Five

by Julie Kusma

Excerpt:

Dear Jean, 

I know you expected to find me at our cottage, and instead, you find a letter postmarked Seattle. I have no words to explain my absence other than my heart is broken. I simply can’t drag myself out of bed, let alone make myself board a plane. Continue reading Between Friends, Part Five here.


Between Friends, Part Six

by Jill Yoder

Excerpt:

Dear Jackie,

My heart dropped to my gut after reading the first half of your letter. You and Mark have a connection that extends decades—of course; you will be fearful of that loss. Likewise, I am disgusted at your daughters’ lack of compassion and sense of honor toward their parents. You raised them better than that. I will continue to pray for you both. Continue reading Between Friends, Part Six here.


The mystery continues, so keep checking in each month for more exciting developments.
