Professional reviews

"Narrator Fred Sanders is a master of pacing, easily carrying listeners through the many layers of this story of three college roommates reuniting for the first time since their 1971 graduation. Despite their different life choices and personalities, the men find their bonds are still tight and discover that none of them has ever forgotten their other best friend, a girl, who, four decades earlier, left Martha's Vineyard after a similar weekend, never to be seen again. Sanders beautifully conveys the men's nostalgia for their youth and their eternal love for the long-lost beautiful girl, subtly differentiating those feelings from their 21st-century concerns and secrets. Mixing character study, missing-person mystery, and period piece, the audiobook explores the divide between our public and our private lives.
