Goodreads:  Four life-long friends bound by two decades of laughter, love, promises, and secrets. Once inseparable, the four grow into independent adults pursuing very different paths.

Sage, raised by career-driven parents, follows a carefully laid out future of success that leaves her wondering what she’s missed out on.

Emily, the college drop-out, now has three children that have become her whole life. She’s slowly lost herself, subconsciously seeking dangerous ways to cope. Can she find herself in time?

Jax always lived on the edge, skating through life with no apparent ambition, yet remained the energy and emotional cement of the group. She longs for her friends to accept her without trying to fix her.

Ned, Emily’s twin brother, yearns to stand up and be counted. But his old loyalties and new feelings for one of the girls has him pulled in different directions.

Will the ties that held them together as kids be strong enough for them as adults? These four friends will discover the true meaning of friendship and unveil truths about themselves they never knew existed.

Ope’s Opinion:  It took some reading to get into the story.  Meeting all the characters involved and figuring out their relationships and their history took a little while.  Each person had a secret or two and some issues they needed to deal with. You will be able to find a character to relate to.  They are each very different.

The setting at the beach is always my favorite place to be and read about.

This is not a predictable read.  When you start it, you don’t know where it is going to go.  There a several twists and turns that keep you reading.  You will like where it ends.


Rating: Three Chairs – I like the book enough to suggest it to a friend or two.
