In 1931, Budgie and Lily, students at Smith College, meet Jewish football player Nick Greenwald, from Dartmouth. Although Lily and Nick fall in love, they don't end up together due to family pressure. Narrator Kathleen McInerney gives an emotional reading of this novel. By 1938, just before a devastating hurricane, Budgie is married to Nick and summering in Seaview, Rhode Island, where they encounter Lily. McInerney sensuously delivers this story of friendship, rivalry, and anti-Semitism. She ably makes the transitions between timeframes and fills in the background of Budgie and Lily's relationship, which is rife with tension in the later years.
