Description

As onetime classmates meet up over the course of a weekend for their fortieth high school reunion, they discover things that will irrevocably affect the rest of their lives. For newly divorced Dorothy, the reunion brings with it the possibility of finally attracting the attention of the class heartthrob. For the ever self-reliant, ever left-out Mary Alice, it's a chance to reexamine a painful past. For Lester, a veterinarian and widower, it is the hope of talking shop with a fellow vet--or at least that's what he tells himself. For Candy, the class beauty, it's the hope of finding friendship before it's too late. As these and other classmates converge for the reunion dinner, four decades melt away: desires and personalities from their youth reemerge, and new discoveries are made. For so much has happened to them all. And so much can still happen.

Review quote

"[Berg] has a knack for taking you right into the soul of her characters, as they respond to joy and tragedy in a perfectly imperfect way."--Chicago Sun-Times "A warm, unsentimental look at life way past high school--and the hope some people hold of reliving those glory days."--People (four stars) "For the delightful hours it takes to read this novel, it seems that the characters jumped right off the page and joined the crowd for a casual family supper."--Chicago Tribune "Marvelous . . . plenty of pathos and can't-stop-laughing moments . . . Readers will care about every character."--The Oklahoman "Book groups are clamoring for upbeat yet significant works that are entertaining as well as enlightening; Berg's latest novel satisfies and succeeds on both counts."--Booklist
