The book is mainly about four girls in their college days beginning with Kate, walking a tightrope over an abyss of lies. There is Cecie, who's sensible, self-contained, and got it all together. Ginger is the heiress, sexy, vibrant, and richer than sin. And finally, there is Fig, who is poor, hopeless, yet brilliant. They came together as sorority sisters on a Southern campus in the 60's, bound by rare, blinding, early friendship. They spent two idyllic spring breaks at Nag's Head, North Carolina, the isolated strip of barrier islands where grand old weatherbeaten houses perch defiantly at the edge of a storm-tossed sea.
Now thirty years later, they are coming back. They want to recapture the exquisite magic of those early years. They will experience again the love, enthusiasm, pain, and cruel betrayal that shaped them into women and set them adrift on the Outer Banks.
A good, yet complex read. The reader needs to pay close attention to details to enjoy this book.
