In her college freshman year, Sophie Holmes met Eva and John, forging the kind of deep friendship that seems destined to last forever. But time proved otherwise, and Sophie married and moved to Los Angeles. Now, two decades later, newly divorced and adrift, Sophie has returned to Boston, and instinctively reaches out to the people who once defined her world.
Though they’ve stayed in the same city, Eva and John too have grown apart. Eva is an ambitious advertising executive who favors flings over relationships. John is a dedicated lawyer wondering if he’s left it too late for love and marriage. Through Sophie’s reappearance, their connection crackles to life once more. Just as they did long ago, the three confide their longings and secrets—until old insecurities and new betrayal threatens to shatter their bond for good.
Holly Chamberlin’s thoughtful novel is a story of rediscovery and letting go, and of the ties that remind us where we’ve been—and where we still hope to go.
