All through childhood and adolescence, Jane, Cara, and Meg swore their friendship would stand the test of time. But once they hit their twenties, life got more complicated. When Jane eloped with her wealthy new boyfriend and didn't invite them to the wedding, the small cracks and fissures in their once rock-solid relationship became a chasm. Years later, after her husband is arrested and publicly shamed for defrauding his clients, Jane realizes her life was a sham and flees to her childhood friends. Cara and Meg have troubles of their own, but as much as they'd love to see Jane get her comeuppance, they decide not to abandon their friend in her time of need, and slowly find ways to repair their broken bonds. With an amusing tone, Duffy explores complex issues, especially how much pressure women put on themselves and one another to be perfect.
