Publisher's Summary

Four friends. Twenty years. One unexpected journey.

Inseparable throughout college, Eva, Benedict, Sylvie, and Lucien graduate in 1997 into an exhilarating world on the brink of a new millennium. Hopelessly in love with playboy Lucien and eager to shrug off the socialist politics of her upbringing, Eva breaks away to work for a big bank. Benedict, a budding scientist who's pined for Eva for years, stays on to complete his PhD in physics, devoting his life to chasing particles as elusive as the object of his affection. Siblings Sylvie and Lucien, never much inclined toward mortgages or monogamy, pursue more bohemian existences - she as an aspiring artist and he as a club promoter and professional partyer.

But as their 20s give way to their 30s, the group struggles to navigate their thwarted dreams. Scattered across Europe and no longer convinced they are truly the masters of their fates, the once close-knit friends find themselves filled with longing for their youth - and for one another. Broken hearts and broken careers draw the foursome together again but in ways they never could have imagined.

A dazzling depiction of the highs and lows of adulthood, Invincible Summer is a story about finding the courage to carry on in the wake of disappointment and a powerful testament to love and friendship as the constants in an ever-changing world.

    "Hello Memory Lane"

    This book felt like I went through the attic and found boxes of old pictures, yearbooks, and family videos. Even though at times it made me melancholy to think of past regrets and failures, it was equally motivational. Not sure if all generations would identify as well with the characters as I did, but Gen X should easily relate to each chapter. It feels that there should be much more to say about giving this read 5 stars, but I simply really liked it.
