From the book jacket: Kate Walbert conveys the dreams and reality
of a group of women who came into the quick rush of adulthood,
marriage, and child-bearing during the 1950s. Narrating from the
heart of ten companions, Walbert subtly depicts all the anger,
disappointment, vulnerability, and pride of her characters: "Years
ago we were led down the primrose lane, then abandoned somewhere

slaughter of the country club's fairway geese, to dialing former
lovers in the dead of night.
