Would She Ever Return? On the surface, Alice Laxton seems no different from any other college girl: bright, inquisitive, excited about the life ahead of her. But for years, a genetic time bomb has been ticking away. Because of Alice's near-genius intelligence, teachers and counselors have always made excuses for her "little idiosyncrasies.

As One Marriage Begins,Five Others Are Put to the Test.Drawn to Lakeside Inn from a variety of locations as diverse as they are, Elizabeth Anderson, Suzette Burke, Ingrid Campbell, Margaret Simpson, and Laura Fairbanks–the bride’s aunt, family friend, bridesmaid, grandmother of the bride, and sister of the groom–seemingly share little more than their collective joy for the couple marrying at the mountain resort. During the course of one unforgettable day, however, each woman reaches a point of reckoning in her own most intimate relationship.As their stories unfold, the women of necessity turn to one another–upholding each other through the pain of postpartum depression, doubts about an upcoming wedding, the discovery of a husband’s affair, reflections on the ups and downs of life as a war bride, and plans to end a 25-year marriage. Through it all, their connection with one another deepens and grows, as does their understanding of themselves and of the healing power of love, perseverance, and friendship.

So many characters, several of whom are related in some way or about to be.

There's Elizabeth whose husband Phil doesn't pay her much mind. At this point, she's thinking about what life might be like without him in the picture. Elizabeth is aunt to the bride, Jennifer. Conner and Patrick, ushers at the wedding, are Elizabeth's adult sons.

There's Suzette who believes she's arm candy for her lawyer husband. Everything and everybody to Suzette, has to be top notch in her little world. She wears designer clothing and looks down on folks, quickly judging them by appearance. All is not well in her world. Her husband is the groom's boss. Suzette is convinced her husband is having an affair with his secretary.

Meet Mrs. Simpson (Margaret) - Margaret is pleasant, positive and upbeat. She sees trouble in people's lives and prays for them. She is the grandmother of the bride. She's missing her late husband Calvin of almost 60 years.

As Suzette and Elizabeth talk, things look bleaker and bleaker.

Laura is David's wife. They have an almost 2-month old daughter who keeps her busy. David is brother to the groom-to-be. She's feeling insecure in her marriage right about now. After all there are many lovely looking women at the wedding and her in-laws are so wealthy. She wonders if David is having second thoughts about her.

Ingrid, it appears, is the wedding planner for her friend Jenny. Ingrid is the maid-of-honor, Jenny's best friend. She and her fiance, Jason are planning on getting married soon as well. She's having second thoughts, eyeing Patrick.

Jeannette -- mother of the bride.

Eric -- father of the bride, son of Margaret.

Lana -- a bridesmaid and also Jenny's roommate from college. Also eyeing Patrick.

Catherine is the groom's super rich mother. She looks down her nose at her daughter-in-law, Laura. Catherine is married to Alex. He seems like a decent rich guy.

What appeared to have potential for the first several chapters, is now dragging on with whiny, insecure females, comparing themselves to the other women. Some of them are so sure their guys are or might be, more interested in someone else. I want to hear the guys' side of the story now.

The author uses a lot of "my Eric," "my Calvin, "my David..."

I have to add though that folks do need to be reassured how much we value and appreciate them.

This is a review about the physical damage that was on the book itself when we received it. The cover was in poor shape and the corners were damaged. There was a small fold a few inches from the edge. The book did not look used, it simply looked like a new book that had been damaged.

So encouraging and a wake up call about perceptions and being quick to judge, and assume things about our relationships

The five women are at the Lakeside Inn to attend the wedding of Jennifer to Michael. Each has differing feelings about marriage and relationships with men in general. All feel they are in some form of a personal crisis.

The bride's Aunt Elizabeth Anderson plans to confront her seemingly indifferent husband Phil after the ceremony as she sees nothing positive with their quarter of a century together especially since she assumes he loves his jogging partner Delia. The wife of Michael's boss Suzette Burke thinks her spouse Jim is cheating on her. Jennifer's widowed paternal grandmother Margaret Simpson misses her Calvin, who died almost a year ago. The groom's sister-in-law Laura Fairbanks suffers from postpartum depression, but her husband David, their family and her friends refuse to see her mental troubles as their two month old daughter Amy is perfect. Finally Ingrid Campbell suffers from doubts about tying the knot to Jason; she fears she agreed to his proposal as a knee jerk reaction to her best friend's wedding.

This character driven tale contains a female ensemble effortlessly rotating chapter leads. The shifting view point is easy to follow as each of the fivesome differs in relation to the bride and that brings some depth to the troubled quintet. Though readers will empathize with each of the lead players, what initially seems like anguish built up over varying time periods, resolves relatively too easily though not all remain as couples by the end of the day; expediting the issues make the quintet seem somewhat shallow. Still this is a fine relationship drama starring likable people in trouble.
