About the Book

From New York Times bestselling author Kathleen Tessaro comes a poignant, funny, and utterly remarkable story of real life, real love, and fantasy—and the changes they put you through. Following a dream can lead to unexpected places....

It is 1986, and eighteen-year-old aspiring actress Evie leaves Eden, Ohio, to study theater in London, England. Almost immediately she falls in with new female chums Imogen (born-again Laura Ashley poster child, frustrated virgin) and Robbie (gorgeous wild-child bohemian, far from virginal). The world is thrilling and new, and anything is possible...until love intervenes.

It is 2001, and Evie's a single mother teaching drama to night students. Robbie is dead, killed in a car accident. And Evie is doing her level best to forget the past, the lost opportunities, and the dreams that exploded...until an old friendship comes back to haunt her. Literally.
