Product Description

The “engaging, emotionally rich” (Booklist) novel of old friends reunited . . . and torn apart once again

Miranda Meadowe lives a relatively solitary life in her rustic country home, but her world dramatically changes when she invites a group of her oldest friends to move in with her. In the beginning, the reunion is joyous. They laugh, dance, drink, behave badly, and cling to the heritage they thought would be theirs forever: power, health, stability. But as the days pass, long-forgotten grudges resurface and new tensions emerge. And when an ancient burial site is discovered nearby, the outside world descends upon them. The isolation of the group is breached, and the past revealed―and they realize the future that beckons may be very different than the one they had imagined.

"Rosie Thomas writes with beautiful, effortless prose, and shows a rare compassion and a real understanding of the nature of love." —The Times
