“This is the story of three inseparable college friends -- Pen, Cat, and Will -- who finally go their separate ways until Will and Pen get a mysterious summons from Cat to their college reunion. What they find there is each other, but no Cat, only Cat's forlorn husband, Jason -- the catalyst for the trio's split six years earlier. Jason tells them a story that sends them on a journey that changes everything. With these characters, de los Santos demonstrates that people aren't perfect, and that sometimes they aren't true to their friends or even to themselves, but that everybody -- even the most flawed among us -- deserves a version of 'happily ever after.'”
-- Jill Miner, Saturn Booksellers, Gaylord, MI


Description

It's been six years since Pen Calloway watched Cat and Will, her best friends from college, walk out of her life. Through the birth of her daughter, the death of her father, and the vicissitudes of single motherhood, she has never stopped missing them. When, after years of silence, Cat—the bewitching, charismatic center of their group—urgently requests that the three meet at their college reunion, Pen can't refuse. But instead of a happy reconciliation, what awaits is a collision of past and present that sends Pen and Will on a journey around the world, with Pen's five-year-old daughter and Cat's hostile husband in tow. And as Pen and Will struggle to uncover the truth about Cat, they find more than they bargained for: startling truths about who they were before and who they are now.

With her trademark wit, vivid prose, and gift for creating authentic, captivating characters, Marisa de los Santos returns with an emotionally resonant novel about our deepest human connections.
