One yellow April morning, a seventeen year old girl makes a trivial decision. But is it trivial? What she decides will set her life on one of three radically different paths. That morning is long past. Now she is fortyone. On one life path, she calls herself Antonia. She's barely survived the implosion of a lesbian Utopian commune, one built on an abandoned oil rig. On another path, she is Katherine, a physician. After the death of an old lover, she contacts the only woman who still haunts her: the deeply religious Amanda. On a third, she is Kitty. She's been happily married for twentythree years. Happily enough. Until she meets Faye. The parallel lines of their lives are about to converge.
