Four friends. Twenty years. One unexpected journey.
Eva, Benedict, Sylvie, and Lucien graduate in 1998, into a world on the brink of the new millennium. Hopelessly in love with playboy Lucien and keen to shrug off the socialist politics of her childhood, Eva breaks away to work at a big bank. Benedict, a budding scientist who's pined for Eva for years, stays on to do a physics PhD, and siblings Sylvie and Lucien pursue more freewheeling existences—she as an aspiring artist and he as a club promoter and professional partier. But as their dizzying twenties become their thirties, the once close-knit friends, now scattered and struggling to navigate thwarted dreams, lost jobs and broken hearts, find themselves drawn together once again in stunning and unexpected ways. Breathtaking in scope, this is sure to be the book of the summer.

"A story of friendship and love, of endings and beginnings, Alice Adams's debut is a thought-provoking and engaging novel. Narrator Georgia Dolenz brings to life the personal journeys, changing times, and complicated relationships of four friends over two decades. Though Eva is the story's featured protagonist, Dolenz transitions well between the main characters--Eva, Benedict, Sylvie, and Lucien--giving each a distinctive voice and personality. Despite tackling some difficult issues, this is a lighthearted story overall, with moments that will make listeners laugh out loud. Ultimately, Dolenz helps to create characters one can't help but root for, at their worst and their best. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
