Publisher's Summary

Two girls and three boys, all with strikingly different looks and talents, meet at the Atwood school as young children. Together, they become an inseparable group - known to outsiders as "The Big Five" - and lean on one another through all the bumps and bends of childhood and adolescence. But when the tight-knit group graduates and scatters to different colleges, their lives diverge dramatically, and some of the friends are lost forever....

Those who remain will struggle to understand that even bonds that once seemed unbreakable are not proof against tragedy - but that they can also transform into something new and entirely unexpected.

Incredibly, utterly depressing story!

My review is only for the Audible Abridged version. I truly hope the unabridged version is a lot better (although I can’t imagine how it could be)! My husband and I always listen to Danielle Steel novels when we take long trips by car and we’ve been doing this for over 20 years. This story is by far the worst, most depressing Danielle Steel novel we have ever heard. Although all of her novels have some angst and drama, we have always feel somewhat uplifted by the end. Not this book. It’s AWFUL!
