Bess Culpepper has long been sure of two things - that her group of college friends would stay close, and that love is worth the wait. At forty-two, she's found the right man, and she's inviting her best friends to beautiful Kennebunkport for the wedding. But Allison, half of a devoted couple since college, is making the trip without her husband. The usually level-headed Marta is conspicuously on edge, and Chuck reveals devastating personal news. As reality encroaches on her dreams of the perfect gathering, Bess begins to second guess her assumptions about friendship and fidelity. If relationships like these can flounder, how can any couple stay committed?
