Thirty years after trading her peasant blouse for Pucci, businesswoman and ‘life coach’, Kaye Stoddart has a strong feeling she is meant to reconnect with her former teenage friends, but she isn’t sure why. What would they have in common after decades apart? More importantly, how did such an unlikely bonding happen back in 1969?
Confident that six grown women could do no damage in a weekend at the Jersey shore, Kaye makes plans to throw a nostalgic beachside reunion for the SHEMANDOS, tie-dyed crusaders for truth in an unreal world.
When Kaye’s authentic sixties experience stirs up vivid memories of bold, impassioned ideals, the women begin to wonder if the paths that they have chosen are leading them astray. As the story moves towards its conclusion, each is offered a glimpse of a richer, more authentic life. But will they have the courage to live it?
