Miranda Meadowe lives a relatively solitary life in her rustic country home, but her world dramatically changes when she invites a group of her oldest friends to move in with her. In the beginning, their reunion is joyous. They laugh, dance, drink, behave badly, and being to reclaim the things they thought would be theirs forever. But as the days pass, long-forgotten grudges resurface and new tensions emerge, and they discover that their bond may not be the same as it once was. And when an ancient burial site is discovered not far from the cottage, the outside world descends upon them and their isolation is breached.

first book by this author i have read and i'm enjoying it very much.

it is about a group of friends from the 60's who are now in their 60's and back together in an old house in the english countryside.

it occurred to me that the 60's are an interesting stage in life as one is long past youth and middle age is now over but one is not really old. there is still time for some adventures and maybe a new relationship?
"lovers and newcomers" explores this-a good summer read.
