A novel for turbulent times and searching minds.
Berkeley psychotherapist Amanda Scott invites four former roommates to celebrate her fiftieth birthday at a tranquil vacation cottage overlooking the Pacific. Afraid her perfect life is about to unravel, Amanda hopes to make a pact with the old pals and gain insight into her once happy identity. Turmoil erupts when she gets an unexpected call from a neighbor.
In a weekend interspersed with walks at the beach, local pub life, home-cooked meals and California wine, the companions reveal compelling stories of jealousy, perfection, abandonment, and betrayal. The cozy home’s fieldstone fireplace, ocean views, and mystical atmosphere provide the heart space for intense conversation surrounded by nature’s soothing presence—misty night breezes, tingly pine scents, and rhythmic wild birdsongs. By reunion’s end, the healing power of friendship and the unquestioned stamina of forgiveness secure a foundation for self-renewal.
