A Wedding in December
by Anita Shreve, a review from Christian Science Monitor by Matt Rusling.
"Seven high school friends meet 27 years after graduation for a long weekend. Such is the Big Chill setup of Anita Shreve's new novel A Wedding in December. As the title indicates, it's a wedding rather than a funeral that's sparked this particular reunion, but one member is missing. Stephen Otis, the most charismatic and athletic of the friends, drowned the spring of their senior year." Read the entire Christian Science Monitor review.
