This book opens with a character who is indecisive. This drives me crazy in real life and I thought it was a weird way to start a book. Overall this book is depressing. These former college roommates relive their Mississippi River voyage because one of their own has died. Not much of the original trip is mentioned in the book; the focus is on their college years and what happened to the four characters after college. None of the women seem happy with their current situation and some of them have engaged in extramarital affairs. Some of the chapter endings seemed rushed and the "epilogue" where the other college girls are mentioned seemed out of tune with the rest of the story.
