For three decades, Alex and Christine have been friends with Zachary and Lydia. Now in their fifties, Alex and Christine are spending a leisurely summer's evening at home when they receive a call from a distraught Lydia: she is at the hospital, and Zach has died. In the wake of this profound loss, Lydia moves in with her lifelong friends. But in this "gorgeous, utterly absorbing" novel (Boston Globe) by the author of The London Train, instead of bringing them closer, the three of them find that it warps their relationships, as old entanglements and grievances rise from the past, and love and sorrow give way to anger and bitterness.
