Nikki Sole’s symptoms from advanced Hepatitis C are becoming increasingly severe. Needing assistance to care for her young son, she seeks help from a former post-college roommate, Carney Christianson, stirring up memories of times past. The narrative jumps back fifteen years to 1976, with school friends Nikki, Carney, Breeze and Margo, all struggling through that tenuous time after college graduation, taking their first steps into establishing careers and formative relationships. Nikki, behind schedule, is still pushing herself to finish her undergrad work and hoping to apply to medical school. Carney encounters the harsh realities of workplace harassment in retail management. Breeze Smith, marrying directly after graduation, is seeking a balance with her husband’s complicated life and getting her foot in the door of an interior design firm, while Margo Anderson faces frustration trying to compete in the tough world of modeling in New York. The story catapults us back and forth from their trek through 1976 to their current status in 1991, as the four are brought back together for a party commemorating Nikki. Events told by each character relate their successes and failures as they navigate their route from classroom to career, trying to balance romantic relationships, jobs and budgets. Amusing, contemplative and heartbreaking, this intertwining story has us realizing the decisions of the four, during those early forays into adulthood, link them together for years to come.
