From world-renowed author Erich Segal comes a  powerful and moving saga of five extraordinary  members of the Harvard class of 1958 and the women  with whom their lives are intertwined. Their  explosive story begins in a time of innocence and spans  a turbulent quarter century, culminating in their  dramatic twenty-five reunion at which they  confront their classmates--and the balance sheet of  their own lives. Always at the center; amid the  passion, laughter, and glory, stands Harvard--the  symbol of who they are and who they will be. They  were a generation who made the rules--then broke  them--whose glittering successes, heartfelt  tragedies, and unbridled ambitons would stun the  world.
