Madeline is funny, biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste is a beautiful woman, but she is paying a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mom Jane comes with a mysterious past and sadness beyond her years. The three women are at different crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place. This is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
