The eight Drummond Girls first met in 1991 at Peegeo’s Food & Spirits in northern Michigan where, at the time, they were all waitresses, bartenders, or regular customers. When one of them got engaged, they celebrated with a trip to Drummond Island—their first trip together to the remote thirty-six-mile chunk of rock, dive bars, dirt roads, and beautiful forests—and it’s where they became bonded forever. They’ve made this voyage every year since then as a way to retain a piece of their wild youth, despite the taming influence of marriage, motherhood, and management. This year, their focus is Beverly, oldest of the Drummond Girls at sixty-five, whose memory is beginning to lapse. Undaunted, the other women intend to help Beverly remember all they’ve shared—every campfire, every late night talk, every secret confided.
