The Solarium is a story — four stories actually — of four women who come together at a beach house to gossip, laugh, and drink wine, only to discover one of them is determined to kill herself. Madge, a writer, has reasons to do so and asks for their help. Her friends, of course, have reasons to agree — or not.
Madge’s gift to them is four fictionalized stories of their lives, lives she has followed since they all graduated from a small west coast college forty-some years ago. Her stories are not finished yet, just as the women are not finished. With decisions still to be made, their stories will not end by the time the weekend is over.
This novel celebrates friendships that endure and is designated as a contemporary women’s novel.
