They met in college and have been inseparable ever since: Cecile, confident, elegant, daughter of privilege; Norma, extraordinarily gifted and sadly troubled; Amanda, determined to rise above her humble southern beginnings.  Two are married; one despairs of ever finding love; all lead busy adult lives.  Yet, first and always, friends. But, in every life there is a moment when everything changes.  For Cecile, Norma and Amanda it comes in the form of a pivotal event, a shattering act of betrayal that will shift the balance of power between husbands and wives, parents and children, sisters and brothers.  After, the three friends will look at their families, their lives- and one another- differently.  And none of them will be the same. Filled with the magical storytelling and emotional resonance that are Belva Plain's trademarks, Looking Back captures the profound intimacy and drama in the lives of women and their families.  Tender, moving, and unforgettable, it is a richly woven page-turner by one of our most gifted authors.
