Dorothy Baker's novel is the tragicomic tale of Cassandra Edwards, a Berkeley grad student who returns to her family's California ranch to attend her twin sister's wedding. Cassandra's the type of heroine who may decide to stop at a roadside bar for vodka, or make drunken calls from a pay phone hoping that her sister Judith will talk her down from doing anything impulsive. This classic weekend-wedding set-up is a tipsy comedy of manners and rumination on love's ultimate unfairness. Cassandra
