(From the publisher):
Looking back, it seemed like paradise: lives filled with the blessings of friendship, marriage, children, and career. For twenty years, four friends — Chris, Barbara, Susan, and Vicki — shared everything through good times and bad, and faced the challenges of life and love head-on.
Now, one sits alone to ponder the strange twists and turns of fate and circumstance.
Now, she must sift thorugh each of their pasts to discover exactly what went wrong, how dreams turned to nightmares as friendships faded and lives were destroyed.
Chris lived a contented life in her modest house with her growing family. It was her husband who never seemed satisfied — and who expected her to sacrifice her happiness to cater to his whims.
Barbara prided herself on staying beautiful for her handsome professor husband. But it wasn't enough to keep him from dallying with his nubile young students.
Susan finished college after motherhood and became a successful magazine editor. But a casual flirtation threatened to shatter the harmonious life she had worked so hard to build.
Vicki's achievements as a stellar and sought-after trial lawyer came at a huge personal price: a marriage and family that always took second place.
