Francie Meeker and Vi Carothers were sold a bill of
goods: find a man, marry him in a white wedding gown, and
live happily ever after. These best friends never
expected to be on the train to Reno, those â€ślies in white
dressesâ€ť shattered, their marriages over.
On board the train they meet June Samples, who is fleeing
an abusive husband with her daughter, and take the
vulnerable young mother under their wing. The three
decide to wait out the required six weeks together, and
then they can toss their wedding bands into the Truckee
River and start new lives as divorcees.
But as they settle in at the ranch, one shocking moment
will change their lives forever. As it brings their
deceptions and fears into focus, it will also demand a
reckoning with the past, and the choices that a person in
love can be driven to make.
