After the prologue introduces four characters, we're dropped directly into the story of their reconnecting after twenty years. Rosalyn Landor gives us a toehold by defining each person and giving us enough emotion to engage us. Her voice is breezy as Holly tells of her "perfect" life and falters as she relates Olivia's lack of success in love and commerce. As Saffron, her sentences are clipped, hinting at secrecy. Gradually, we begin to understand their shared history and their grief at the sudden death of a dear friend. As Green depicts how this event propels each to change, the story is predictable, but Landor's lively switching of viewpoints keeps the listening enjoyable.
