Massachusetts, seven former schoolmates gather for a wedding. Nora, the owner of the inn, has recently had to reinvent her life following the death of her husband. Avery, who still hears echoes from a horrific event at Kidd Academy twenty-six years ago, has made a life for himself in Toronto with his wife and two sons. Agnes, now a history teacher at Kidd is a still-single woman who longs to tell a secret she cannot reveal to the others, a secret that would stun them all. Bridget, the mother of a 15-year-old boy, has agreed to marry Bill, an old high school lover whom she has recently re-met, despite uncertainties about her health and future. Indeed, it is Bill who passionately wants this wedding and who has brought everyone together for an astonishing weekend of revelation and recrimination, forgiveness and redemption. This is Anita Shreves most ambitious and moving novel to date, probing into human motivation with the grace and skill that have made her one of the finest novelists of her time (Boston Herald).

At first I didn't like the "interruption" about Innes and Hazel. As I read further I realized their stories were similar to the reunion Both were impacted by 1..Drowning of a good friend . 2. The horrible results of a massive explosion in Halifax. Both calamities caused estrangements and long held regrets and loss.

I liked the concept of old friends getting together for a wedding many years after they last saw each other. What I didn't like was that one character was writing or had written a story and that story was being told - I found myself skipping over these parts. I don't know how they related to the rest of the book. They didn't hold my interest.
