Theyâve been the best of friends for decades and seen everythingâmarriage, divorce, success, and bankruptcy. They think that there are no more surprises, that theyâve learned all of lifeâs lessons. But theyâre wrong. Theyâve only just begun.
Recently divorced and seeking to find herself, Penny moves to a picturesque town in France, happy to live aloneâthat is until she meets an irresistible American philosophy professor. Meanwhile, handsome bachelor Peter falls head over heels for the first time in his life with curvaceous, sexy, and fiercely independent Frieda; Tim and Angie face challenges in their childless, co-dependent marriage; and Jeremy, twice divorced and the most successful of them all, struggles with a destructive addiction.
At the heart of the story is Sandy, Pennyâs ex-husband and once an acclaimed songwriter. Realizing perhaps too late that heâs taken his wife and children for granted, he attempts to reconcile with his son and daughter. But before he can make amends with them, Sandy has to confront a secret tragedy that has haunted him, and his relationships, for decades.
