They had been inseparable as roommates in college, Mary Stuart, Tanya, and Zoe. But in the more than twenty years that followed, the three had moved on with their lives. By chance, each would find herself alone for a few weeks one summer, wrestling with both the present and the past. At a sprawling ranch in the foothills of Wyoming's Grand Tetons, the three women come together and find courage, healing, and truth, and reach out to each other once again.
Despite the honesty they once shared, now pretense among them runs high. Mary Stuart Walker, married for twenty-one years to a Manhattan lawyer, still hasn't gotten over the guilt, or the fear that her husband will never forgive her for their son's death... Tanya Thomas, an award-winning singer and rock-star, enjoys all the trappings of fame and success - a mansion in Bel Air, legions of fans, and a broken heart .... Dr. Zoe Phillips has little time for herself as a single mother to an adopted two-year-old, and as a doctor at an AIDS clinic in San Francisco - until unexpected news forces her to reevaluate both her future, and her current life.
But despite the changes in their lives, their friendship is still a bond they all treasure and share. For each of the women, a few weeks at the ranch will bring healing and release, as old hurts are buried, ancient secrets revealed, and love replaced or renewed.
