Summary
A community college professor whose career has stagnated, and a wife and mother whose marriage has tumbled into a spiral of apathy and distrust, Lena is frustrated at the seeming impossibility of happiness. As Lena makes her way to present a paper at a remote New England conference, a chance encounter with an old schoolmate a once average-seeming teenager who has since achieved international fame as a human rights advocate-catapults Lena into memories of their life changing summer together, as counselors at a summer camp in the backwoods of rural Russia during the massive cultural changes of perestroika in the 1980s
Summary
When she embarks on an impulsive weekend trip with Ben, an artist turned reluctant academic, who is also having an early mid-life crisis, Lena reveals the secrets she has long kept hidden and together they search out the truth behind her past while savoring each stolen moment together.
