Some friendships last a lifetime, changing lives along the way. Feathers at My Feet: A Memoir of Enduring Friendship is the true story of a bond just like that. Art teacher and author Barbara Pearson knew about fellow artist and activist Phyllis Bosco long before they met in 1980. A longstanding celebrity in Barbara's hometown of Tallahassee, Florida, Phyllis was a free-spirited woman well-known for her protests against the Vietnam War and artistic endeavors. Over the decades, the two developed a close camaraderie and, together with a clique of like-minded friends, called themselves the "Dancing Girls." Tired of failed relationships and broken marriages, Barbara and Phyllis decided to spend their retirement years together and bought a beach house in Florida. Everything did not go according to plan, but after a period of estrangement, tragedy brought the two friends together once again.

A heartwarming tale of companionship that showcases the impact friends have on each other throughout their lives, Feathers at My Feet is a moving memoir that hits all the right notes. Barbara Pearson gives an unfiltered account of her life and friendship with artist Phyllis Bosco, celebrating a woman whose influence on others lasted decades and changed the course of many lives. The narrative is doused in nostalgia, light-hearted humor, and emotional passages that will most definitely pull at your heartstrings. Told using a writing style that feels intimate and personal, Barbara's story will move readers to reminisce about the times spent with their friends. I found it relatable and highly recommend it.
