Try to Catch the Water
Three couples—the Jaspers, the Johnstons, and the Raines—are living the American dream. They have been close friends since college and now in their late forties are enjoying the benefits of their success. Corbin Johnston is a successful LA attorney, and his wife is on track to become superintendent of the local school district. Their only daughter, Cyndi, a brilliant young lawyer, is engaged to the mayor’s son, and the wedding is scheduled for Christmas Eve. It will be a highlight of the Los Angeles holiday season.
But four weeks before her wedding, Cyndi is gravely injured when, trying to help a client escape with her life, she is caught in the middle of a violent domestic incident. Not only is Cyndi’s life in peril, but the crisis threatens to reveal a dangerous secret—one that could destroy all that these friends have built together over the past 25 years.
Try to Catch the Water explores the challenges the couples face as they wrestle with shocking revelations and emotional crises that force them to examine the meaning of friendship, the strength of forgiveness, and the ability to regain trust and loyalty once lost.
