Synopsis Five Southern women, whose friendships began on their college swim team, set
aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from
husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage, the “Sweet
Delilah” on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh, and meddle in each
other’s lives. The story focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of
thirty-three years beginning twenty-two years after their college graduation. THE
SWEET DELILAH SWIM CLUB is the story of these five unforgettable women—a
hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.

and an even drier sense of humor, Dinah seldom reveals her softer side as she
tackles life head on.

share wild and hilarious tales of her romantic exploits.

naïve and always see the positive side of everything. Having been a nun for
many years, Jeri Neal has bee protected from life’s seamier side. Even though

Virginia and continually makes life choices that surprise and amaze her friends.

motherhood came shortly after college, a dark cloud has hovered above her ever
