This is a compelling story of fourteen co-eds whose lives

were linked by participation in each others' weddings during and

after they were in college.

   Their lives, during the ten years after the weddings show a

variety of circumstances and adjustments.

   The story is told in the first person by a co-ed who was

raped two years after she graduated and who is so traumatized by

this experience that she becomes afraid of any physical contacts.

   A reunion with five of her friends five years after this

brings her to the realization that she must have therapy to

overcome her problems.

   She is assigned three specific tasks by a Rape Counselor and

these lead her to look up some of her friends ten years after

they had graduated.  Their varied joys and problems console her

and she recovers to the extent that she marries a former college

suitor.  This essentially loveless marriage produces a child but

she is indiscreet enough to begin a passionate affair with a

married man, which terminates as she chooses her husband and son

over the excitement of her lover.
