From the Publisher:
Attending a less-than-prestigious acting academy in the late 1980s, eighteen-year-old Evie Garlick finds herself enmeshed in the lives and theatrical ambitions of her fellow students and roommates, whom she remembers years later while working as a struggling drama teacher. By the author of Elegance. Reprint.
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.
