Elegant Kate, walking a tightrope over an abyss of lies...sensitive, sensible, self-contained Cecie...Ginger, the heiress, sexy, vibrant, richer than sin...and poor, hopeless, brilliant Fig-they came together as sorority sisters on a Southern campus in the '60s. Four young women bound by rare, blinding, early friendship-they spend two idyllic spring breaks at Nag's Head, North Carolina, the isolated strip of barrier islands where grand old weatherbeaten houses perch defiantly on the edge of a storm-tossed sea. Now thirty years later, they are coming back. They are coming back to recapture the exquisite magic of those early years...to experience again the love, the enthusiasm, the passion, pain, and cruel-betrayal that shaped the four young girls into women and set them all adrift on the...Outer Banks.
In the uncertain '60s, four young women came together as sorority sisters on a Southern campus: elegant Kate; sensitive, sensible Cecie; sexy, vibrant, and richer-than-sin Ginger; and poor, hopeless, brilliant Fig. At Nag's Head, North Carolina, over the course of two idyllic spring breaks, their bonds of friendship were strengthened into something rare and powerfully binding. Now, decades later, they are returning to this isolated strip of barrier islands, hoping to recapture what has been lost-the love, the enthusiasm, the passion-and to finally understand what pulled them apart and cast them adrift.
In her magnificent classic Outer Banks, acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Anne Rivers Siddons brilliantly recalls a lost time of hope and dreams-of comradeship, love, secrets, and betrayal-and creates characters brimming with life who will live in the heart forever.
