In the small Minnesota shore town of Flame Lake, a close-knit group of friends find their comfortable lives taking some unforeseen turns. Best friends Devera and BiDi were recently voted "Least Changed" at their twentieth high school reunion, but Devera is starting to think of the label as insulting. Sure, she loves her husband and still believes being a wife and mother is the main entree on life's plate...but she longs for some more exotic side dishes. Lorna Landvik, author of Patty Jane's House of Curl
, creates real, resilient people we come to know and love, and stories with brilliant wit and amazing resonance.
