Now they reunite for a startling week of discoveries.The ritual began when they were in their twenties and their husbands were in medical school, and became a mainstay of every summer thereafter. Their only criteria was oceanfront and isolation, their only desire to strengthen their far-flung friendships. They called themselves the Girls of August. But when one of the Girls dies tragically, the group slowly drifts apart and their vacations together are brought to a halt.Years later, a new marriage reunites them and they decide to come together once again on a remote barrier island off the South Carolina coast.
