Three best friends, all with the same birthday, are about to turn 40. They plan to share this momentous occasion together at a summerhouse in Maine, taking stock of their lives and loves, their wishes and choices. But none of them expect the gift that awaits them at the summerhouse: the chance for each of them to turn their "what might have beens" into reality. Leslie Headrick, Madison Appleby, and Ellie Abbott met 19 years ago. These beautiful and extraordinarily talented young women shared their 21st birthdays while revealing their hopes for the future. But life doesn't always go according to one's youthful imaginings. Leslie refuses to listen to what people are saying about her husband and his beautiful assistant. Madison dropped a modeling career to help her high-school boyfriend recover from an accident. Ellie, a best-selling author, and recently divorced from her narcissistic, philandering husband, has lost her belief in herself as a result of the divorce. When Leslie, Madison, and Ellie reunite at the summerhouse, each finds a puzzling card from a "Madame Zoya" offering them the chance to relive any three months from the past. Each woman will have to decide as she follows the dream that got away - and each must choose the life that will truly satisfy, the longings that live deep inside her heart.

Not worth it

I typically like this author, but I thought this audiobook was much too light. There was no character development. I'm happy with some romance and fantasy, but this story line was too hokey. In fairness, the unabridged version may be great - but I didn't think this was worth the time to listen.

I thought I was getting the full book. This is the abridged copy. There are so many holes that a times it is hard to know who you are talking about.
