Overview

A poignant novel about women's friendships, Riggs Park is the story of Barbara and Marilyn, who once shared an idyllic childhood in the modest Riggs Park neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Now, at age 58, they're each dealing with a crisis of late middle age, yet feel driven to return to the old neighborhood to solve a decades-old mystery that still haunts them. What they discover is a heart-wrenching secret that tests them even further. Will it shatter the resilience that got them through the repressive social mores of the 1950s, the white flight from the city, the fevered years of feminism and antifeminism and childrearing? Or will it give them the strength to move on?
