Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Alexandr and Christine and Zachary and Lydia have been friends since they first met in their twenties. Thirty years later, Alex and Christine are spending a leisurely summer's evening at home when they receive a call from a distraught Lydia: she is at the hospital. Zach is dead. In the wake of this profound loss, the three friends find themselves unmoored; all agree that Zach, with his generous, grounded spirit, was the irreplaceable one they couldn't afford to lose. Inconsolable, Lydia moves in with Alex and Christine. But instead of loss bringing them closer, the three of them find over the following months that it warps their relationships, as old entanglements and grievances rise from the past, and love and sorrow give way to anger and bitterness"-- Provided by publisher.

    Hadley (The Past?, 2016) brings readers into the world of a complicated quartet of friends and lovers. Spanning more than 30 years, the story introduces Alexandr, Christine, Lydia, and Zachary on the day a sudden heart attack claims Zachary's life. Lydia is so distraught at the loss of her husband that Christine invites her to stay with her and Alex. At first, the long relationships among the quartet seem straightforward: Christine and Alex have been married for decades, as had Lydia and Zachary. But then Hadley brings readers back in time to when Christine and Lydia, friends from childhood, first met Alex and Zachary. Back then, Alex was a French professor married to his first wife, Juliet, and it was Lydia who was hopelessly infatuated with him and who schemed to set Christine up with Alex's good friend, Zachary. Hadley traces the friends' relationships through the decades, not only revealing the evolution of their friendships and romances but also the rise and fall of their youthful ambitions and artistic passions. A layered and compelling read. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
