Publisher's Summary

What if saying hello to an old friend meant saying good-bye to life as you know it?

It’s been six years since Pen Calloway watched her best friends walk out of her life. And through the birth of her daughter, the death of her father, and the vicissitudes of single motherhood, she has never stopped missing them.

Pen, Cat, and Will met on their first day of college and formed what seemed like a magical and lifelong bond, only to see their friendship break apart amid the realities of adulthood. When, after years of silence, Cat - the bewitching, charismatic center of their group - e-mails Pen and Will with an urgent request to meet at their college reunion, they can’t refuse. But instead of a happy reconciliation, what awaits is a collision of past and present that sends Pen and Will, with Pen’s five-year-old daughter and Cat’s hostile husband in tow, on a journey across the world.

With her trademark wit, vivid prose, and gift for creating authentic, captivating characters, Marisa de los Santos returns with an emotionally resonant novel about our deepest human connections. As Pen and Will struggle to uncover the truth about Cat, they find more than they bargained for: startling truths about who they were before and who they are now. They must confront the reasons their friendship fell apart and discover how - and if - it can ever fall back together.

    "Narrator's breathy voice a turn off"

    The overall story was okay. However, the narrator read most of the book in Penn's breathy/ whiny voice which was so annoying I had to turn the book off on several occassions just to get a break from it. I realize it is hard to get the true voice of the narrator in the short sample snipets we can listen to before purchasing but had I known the voice was going to be this bad throughout the 13+ hour book, I would have passed.

    Any additional comments?

    Loved Belong to Me and was looking forward to this book from de los Santos, but I thought it would never end. The initial premise had promise but then it disintegrated into this meandering meaning of life story while creating a side story that almost certainly could never happen in any reality. I never loved any of the protagonists and in fact thought they were on a mission that truly meant just about nothing important in their overall lives. I thought about Belong to You for days. This one I was just glad it was over. Don't bother.
