Lucinda can be generous and thoughtful yet equally corrupt. What began as a game, ended bitterly testing loyalties of lifelong friendships. Behind her almost perfect facade lurks a story she has tried to deny. Alice hasn't a practical bone in her body. She loves life and never tires of experimenting with fashion or adventures with her current toy-boy, dubbed The Sickly Prince for his exotic beauty. Now that Fiona has finally relinquished all hope of resurrecting her marriage, she focuses on attempting to update the ancient pub her father is slow to alter, and recapture the lost years. Rose is the sensible one of the group. Unlike her friends, she offers practical advice rather than their preferred drama. Despite her mother's sudden interest in Rose's man-less and child-less state, Rose is content with her independence yet she finds something alluring beneath the academic surface of her best male friend. Together their lives entwine through a humorous and moving maze of friendship and loss.
