In this poignant, exhilarating novel, three enormously successful career women face their regrets, rewrite their wrongs, and take one last shot at a happy birthday.
Abigail is a star, a Martha Stewart type with a weekly TV show and millions of loyal fans. Maddie is a brilliant photographer who shoots for a hip magazine. And Kris is a bestselling author whose taut thrillers fly off the shelves. As girls, they celebrated birthdays together, sharing laughter and tears and hopes for the future. Then they lost touch. Now, on the brink of turning fifty, Abigail reaches out to reconnect.
Once again, Abigail, Maddie, and Kris will spend time together to toast their birthdays. But this year, they’re all too aware of the childhood dreams that never came true. One of them carries a dark, tormenting secret; another is obsessed with the man she loved and lost; a third will give anything to start over. Haunted by the passage of time, all three will go to any length to make sure their wishes come true.
