Publisher's Summary

An inspiring and heartfelt memoir about the friendship between eight women forged over two decades.
The eight Drummond Girls first met in 1991 at Peegeo's Food & Spirits in Northern Michigan, where, at the time, they were all waitresses, bartenders, or regular customers. When one of them got engaged, they celebrated with a trip to Drummond Island - their first trip together to the remote, 36-mile chunk of rock, dive bars, dirt roads, and beautiful forests - and it's where they became bonded forever. They've made this voyage every year since then as a way to retain a piece of their wild youth, despite the taming influence of marriage, motherhood, and management. This year their focus is Beverly, oldest of the Drummond Girls at 65, whose memory is beginning to lapse. Undaunted, the other women intend to help Beverly remember all they've shared - every campfire, every late-night talk, every secret confided.
