From the very beginning they have a lot in common: Charity Lang and Sally Morgan are expecting their first child, and their husbands Sid and Larry are literature professors at the University of Wisconsin. But their relationship becomes more complex as they share decades of loyalty, love, weakness, and disagreements. Thirty-four years after the beginning of this friendship, the Morgans visit their friends' summer home in Vermont for what they know will be their last weekend with Charity. During this visit Larry remembers all their years of friendship, but more importantly than a retelling of past events, this reflection on their shared pasts offers a profound insight into love and friendship, into the attempts of four people to overcome life's trials and tribulations. "Cuando dos jovenes parejas se conocen durante la Gran Depresion surge entre ellas una amistad que durara toda la vida. Son muchas las cosas que inicialmente comparten: Charity Lang y Sally Morgan estan esperando su primer hijo, y sus maridos Sid y Larry son profesores de Literatura en la Universidad de Wisconsin. Pero su relacion se va haciendo mas compleja a medida que comparten decadas de lealtad, amor, fragilidad y desacuerdos. Treinta y cuatro anos mas tarde del inicio de esta amistad, los Morgan visitan la casa de veraneo de sus amigos en Vermont para el que saben sera su ultimo fin de semana junto a Charity. Durante esa visita Larry rememora todos sus anos de amistad, pero por encima del relato de los hechos late una profunda reflexion sobre el amor y la amistad, sobre los intentos de cuatro personas por hacer frente a las tribulaciones de la vida."Read Less
