Elizabeth Morrison has ascended the ranks of her industry and now runs one of the most successful publishing companies in the US. But even after three decades, she has never been able to get past the devastating end of her relationship with the beautiful and brilliant Ruth Abramson. As Elizabeth approaches her 30th college reunion, she must face the woman who long ago acceded to the demands of her father, a famous Russian dissident, and married the young man who’d been chosen for her. It doesn’t make it any easier that Ruth, now divorced and living openly as a lesbian, is the class luncheon speaker.

As the two women face one another and attempt to reconcile their past, Elizabeth finds she must wrestle with a number of issues she has avoided confronting. And she must carefully decide whether she is more distrustful of Ruth or of herself. Is she headed for another fall with this woman? Or does she want to get close again, so she can be the one to walk away?

When it comes to reuniting with the love of your life, it’s not always easy to know the difference between getting back together and just getting back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Three and a half stars This story is a good one. There were parts where the pace felt slow and the detailed descriptions devoted to the publishing business too detailed for my taste. The characters are believable and Elizabeth in particular with her borderline obsession over the end of her college romance was realistic and at times hard to read with its depth of honesty. The supporting characters around her are scene stealers with their wit and wisdom, down to earth ‘tell it like it is’ natures that contrast Elizabeth’s sometimes uptight ways very well. I would have liked to have heard more about Ruth directly from her or from her own circle of friends rather than mostly from Elizabeth’s perspective, for the sake of balance. Ruth’s relationship with Elizabeth in college was so important to Elizabeth and that’s made clear in the book but there’s an imbalance of sorts not hearing nearly as much of Ruth’s side of the story and their story. There isn’t much fluff in this story but it does explore how the end of a relationship can color a person’s future choices and perceptions for better or worse. The ending snuck up on me and I wished for an epilogue or a follow-up story to exist to give me a sense of closure to the story. I would like to read more by Cindy Rizzo in the future and recommend this book to anyone who likes their lesfic less fluffy and more grounded (for lack of a better word) in content.
