Narrator Gayle Hendrix's arch performance adds sparks to this story about four Princeton graduates reconnecting at their 15-year college reunion. Literary agent Franny is desperate for a child, but her unorthodox solution - using her married friend Jay as a sperm donor - leads to unexpected repercussions. Blue-blooded single mom Emerson finds herself drawn to a socially-unacceptable man, and commitment-phobic Stevie wrestles with her boyfriend's marriage proposal and the discovery of a father she never knew. Hendrix expresses each character with precision, from Franny's blunt single-mindedness to Stevie's difficulty in trusting the men in her life. Listeners will find this entertaining audiobook a quick and easy listen.
Fifteen years after their Princeton graduation, Jay, Franny, Emerson, and Stevie meet at a college reunion. Life has taken each of them in different directions - Jay is a married man with a baby on the way, while Franny yearns for a child. Divorced single mom Emerson is drawn to a man who challenges her assumptions about finding a once-in-a-lifetime love. And Stevie has recently been rocked by a shocking revelation - the answer to a long-kept family secret.
Now the bond between them takes a surprising twist, one that changes how each feels about family and friendship. One thing is certain: They will all find their heart's desires in the last place they imagine - as they discover that family is less about blood ties than the warm embrace of ones who accept them as they are.
