They are love, those rare early friendships. As she travels to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a reunion with three of her college chums, Kate Abrams ponders the past. Had she ever known anyone as intimately as these three? There's smart, tough Cecie; foolish, lonely Fig; and pert, wealthy Ginger, who married young Kate's great love. Kate wonders whether such sublime bonds, and such deep betrayals, can survive the years. She is, after all, no stranger to life's ironies. Her father, a poor Southerner, filled her life with social illusions, and took his life in the process. Her husband sustained her through later deaths. And now an ongoing battle with cancer puts Kate's own life on the line.

Forced to face dark truths about her golden past, Kate discovers the meaning of life and the power of true friendship. Mystery, madness, revenge, and awakening await Kate Abrams on the Outer Banks.

    " Really enjoyable if you're like me and have a group of college girlfriends who remain your best friends to this day. That's not to say that's all this book is about, but it creates a foundation connection. My second favorite, behind Peachtree Road. "

    " This is an epic story of female friendship. "

    " This book is awful. I picked it up because I love the Outer Banks and I thought it would be a nice way to reminisce about family vacations. It was also a book about sorority women, of which I am one. I thought it might be nice to view sorority life from a middle-aged perspective. No. There is absolutely zero plot and the syntax is jumpy, with very little contextual interplay. Flashbacks in literature should be seamless; these are jerky and unwarranted. The drama and events are unrealistic and unbelievable, and not in a good way. I read the first 100 pages and gave up. If it's not good by then, it's not going to be good. Don't waste your time on this one. I did and was extremely disappointed. "

    " Okay, they all can't be epic novels and Anne River Siddons is my go-to author for escape reads- both because of her writing about the south, especially the Outer Banks (our home away from home) and her writing style. It's a cut above Danielle Steele. This is a very good 1950s/60s coming-of-age novel, told in flashback format. "
