Readers will (and should) trust it to take us where we need to go — even if not where we expected. — WASHINGTON POST
A persuasive, quietly satisfying portrait of a woman’s midlife crisis and the essential choices she makes. — KIRKUS
Jo’s notes: I was impatient with this at first because it read like a genre romance novel and frankly, I am finding more female protagonists of a certain age stereotypical. That said, I stayed up all night to finish it!
