The Last Time I Saw You

CoverHave you wondered what it would be like to attend your 40th high school reunion? Elizabeth Berg explores this question in a thoughtful book about lost loves and last chances.

The book explores the lives of 5 former classmates. Dorothy Shauman, recently divorced, is trying desperately to reconnect with her daughter. She also hopes the event will reunite her with the former class heartthrob, Pete Decker. Candy Armstrong, once envied for her beauty, is silently suffering in her marriage, her dog her only friend. And what high school class is complete without those unfortunate souls who are marginalized by the cool kids? Enter Mary Alice Mayhew, a kind woman who comes to the reunion hoping to find understanding and forgiveness for events of the past. And last, Lester Hessenpfeffer, a widower and veterinarian- one of the "smart kids"-- is coerced into attending by his assistant in one of the funniest scenes in the book.

The Last Time I Saw You is an enjoyable and well-written book with some surprising turns. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a lighter read, full of interesting characters who evolve as the novel progresses.
