The extraordinary story of two women and the man who came between them, from the acclaimed author of Other Fish in the Sea.
Mona and Hannah were best friends in high school, but they let their friendship slip away in the aftermath of a complicated love triangle with Peter, a man ten years older. Now in their thirties, Mona is a Hollywood movie producer and Hannah imports African goods for her store on the Northern California coast. In an ironic twist of fate, the two women and Peter cross paths again on the exotic island of Zanzibar.
When they meet again, the bonds of love, guilt, and responsibility that kept them tied to one another are brought to the surface. Told in alternating voices and taking readers from California to New York to East Africa, Hat Trick is the richly compelling story of three people reunited--or forever divided.
