This is my first book by Teresa Driscoll. I will be reading more by this author. Sally, Carol and Beth are childhood friends at a boarding school. They are very close, but lose contact their senior year following an unnamed tragedy and promise to keep it secret. Years later, the announcement that the school is being sold leads Sally and Beth to search for Carol, in order to renew contact. They are scared that their secret will come out as a result of the schools ending. Carol seems not to want to be found, and they hire a private investigator to locate her. They find her, and she seemingly wants no parts of reconnecting. The action of contacting her seems to open a Pandora's box. The women are seriously threatened. But once open the box cannot be closed, and the book winds towards its conclusion. As questions mount, we learn more about the burden the three carried for years. No spoilers here -- it's a good read that is complex without hitting you over the head. Recommend this one.
