I really liked the premise of this book. It opens on graduation eve from college. Five college roommates, who are extremely close gather for their last night. They write letters to their older selves and place them in a time capsule.
Fast forward twenty years and the five are now pretty much estranged. They each receive a letter from the lawyer of one of the five who is now deceased. They are to meet at the old college home on her 40th birthday.
Most of us have those long ago friends. Some stayed in touch, others didn’t. Many of us wonder if things might have been different, if only….
I enjoyed this book and the characters. There were parts that felt dragged out and some that felt predictable. But, I loved the idea of it and kept reading.
By the end, I felt connected to the group, even dear sweet Leon. A light, easy read that would work well on a plane or beach.
Available now. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me a copy to read and review.
