Evvie, Maggie, and Topher have known one another since college. Their friendship was something they swore would last forever. Now years have passed, the friends have drifted apart and have lost touch with with the people they dreamed of becoming. But when they come together for their thirtieth reunion, they have a second chance at happiness…until a dark secret is revealed that changes everything.

Marriageology

A smart and concise guide to staying together that draws on scientific findings, expert advice, and years in the marital trenches to explain why marriage is better for your health, your finances, your kids, and your happiness.
