This second novel from the author of Daughters of Memory is a gentle comedy about friendship, family, and small-town America that embraces compromises, infidelity, repression, and (possibly) a murder. Told in gossipy voices, this story unfolds over 20 years as two women watch their dreams collide with the reality of careers, husbands, family, and aging parents.
