Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the weekend proceeds, through walks in the woods, swims in the river, and wine-drinking by moonlight, each character is stripped bare, and old memories and new desires create a chemistry that will change each of them forever.

As Tony's absence haunts each of them in different ways, the reunion is complicated by the presence of Lyle's new lover, a much younger man named Robert, and a faux-Italian dinner guest with a penchant for truth telling. As the seemingly idyllic weekend proceeds, each character is stripped bare, and old memories and new desires create a chemistry that will transform them all.
