At an inn in the Berkshire Mountains, seven former schoolmates gather to celebrate a wedding--a reunion that becomes the occasion of astonishing revelations as the friends collectively recall a long-ago night that indelibly marked each of their lives. Written with the fluent narrative artistry that distinguishes all of Anita Shreve's bestselling novels, A Wedding in December acutely probes the mysteries of the human heart and the endless allure of paths not taken.
A 25th reunion at a Maine boarding school brings together a middle-aged couple--Bridget and Bill--who broke up after high school and went their separate ways. The novel centers on their wedding, which various old classmates have gathered to celebrate at an inn in the Berkshires. A blizzard closes everything down and, snowed in, the group drinks too much and old secrets and scandals are revealed.
