Jill's daughter is getting married. The two women with whom Jill has been best friends since they were little girls--Deanie, a successful novelist, and Trick, who struggles with bipolar disorder--arrive to help celebrate the happy event. The bride, however, has a bigger role than 'wedding guest' in mind for them all--she has decided she will make up her wedding party by honoring the women who raised and nurtured her.
Throughout the week of pre-nuptial parties, Jill and Deanie and Trick relive the events that have shaped their lifelong friendship--their marriages and relationships, the births and losses of their children, the tragedies and joys that have forged their bond. The women discover the true depths of this bond--and how the wish of one unconventional young bride has transformed them all.
Cate Quintara invites you to be a guest at a unique and wonderful wedding, and to celebrate a jubilant life milestone--one made possible only because of the lifetimes of ordinary, every day love that have preceded it.
