In the wake of the depression of 1929, four girlfriends, Letitia, Eleanor, Mary Love and Adora gather in a cold, dusty attic on Christmas day to make a solemn pact. "Our dreams for the future," they whisper, as they place tiny pieces of paper holding their life wishes into the blue bottle. They have no idea what the future has in store for them. Do any of us?
"It's been a very good life. And you can bet that when I go to meet my Maker, I won't be asking any foolish questions about why things didn't turn out the way
I wanted them to be."
