Summary

In Fall we see the tentative beginnings of an unlikely romance – between schoolteacher Amy and drifting former graduate, Charles. In Winter we hear how her colleague Howard learns, seventeen years too late, that he has a daughter following a brief fling with collegemate Annie. Spring and Summer tell the story of his daughter’s friend Rachel’s relationships with her literature teacher, Stuart, and her dying father Reuben.
