The New York Times–bestselling author delivers another winning novel—this time a tale of friendship and fate. Jane Green has become a nationally bestselling author with legions of fans through her novels about the true-life dilemmas of real women—their relationships, their careers, their loves, their triumphs and disappointments. Green tells the story of a group of people who haven’t seen each other since they were best friends at school. When one of them dies in a terrible tragedy, the reunited friends work through their grief together and find that each of their lives is impacted in ways they could never have foreseen. Warm, witty, and as wise as ever, this is a story of friendship, of family, and of life coming full circle.
Jane Green Warburg has written eleven novels, several of which were New York Times bestsellers. A native Londoner, she lives in Connecticut with her husband and their blended family of six children.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Found this book predictable but enjoyable as the characters were real and the themes of death and divorce, universal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Delicious to gobble up every word 3.5. A nice dramatic and gossipy style, similar to Liane Moriarty (but without a secret or mystery to solve) which keeps you reading on easily. No major climactic events just following the ups and downs of 4 high school friends brought back together in adulthood over a tragic loss. You giggle and tear up, and enjoy the happy stories of their lives.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice & Light don't be fooled by the length! It's a light read about old friends being brought together by one of their deaths. Interesting looking back on what their lives were like when they knew each other versus the present.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absorbing The characters that Green writes about are so amazing and ever developing. Each character goes through their own problems but they are all brought together by the death of their closet friend. When the reunite for the funeral each character is going a tremendous change and they each use the help of old friends to bring everything important into perspective. The story is good but what makes this novel excellent is the relationship the characters have with each other and how the relationships haven't changed over the past twenty years.
