Publisher's Summary

When tragedy strikes, four friends reunite in this life-affirming tale from the New York Times best-selling author of Falling.

In school, Tom, Holly, Saffron, Paul, and Olivia were the best of friends. Twenty years later, they’re barely more than strangers. But when Tom dies in a heartbreaking instance of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, the four that remain are thrust back into each other’s lives.

Quickly falling back into the intimacy of their youth, Holly, Saffron, Paul, and Olivia are forced to reexamine the choices they’ve made. As their secrets rise to the surface, Tom’s death becomes the catalyst that changes them all, giving four estranged friends the chance to find a new beginning....

Consistently Intruiging

Jane Green always develops the characters so well. I expected this book to be more dreary, but it was lovely. A lot more occurs within the story than you anticipate. Good listen.

Touching story!

Very character driven. Not action packed, but as a middle-aged woman I felt I could identify with so many of the characters’ uncertainties and questions about life.

So great!

Listened to this book to and from work and found myself sitting in my cat until the chapter was over. Loved the story line once I got a hold of all the characters. Sometimes with audibles if there are many characters it takes me a minute to remember who is who.

I found myself laughing and crying with the characters, Jane Green never disappoints.

Moves too slow

Despite the fact that I usually really enjoy Jane Green's novels, I couldn't get into this one. As usual with her fiction, the pace is slow and more character-driven -- but these characters didn't appeal to me at all, and the only one I felt some interest in was the one who died at the start of the novel.

If it hadn't been for book club...

If it hadn't been for book club, I never would have finished listening to this book. The story was not that interesting, and there was not a single character that made me root for her/him. I just didn't care what happened to them. Yawn.

Boring!

Don't waste a credit. I just couldn't get into this one and slept through a lot of it.
