Publisher's Summary

Elinor Mackey has always done the right things in the right order: college, law school, career, marriage. But now everything's going wrong. After two painful years of trying, Elinor has learned that she can't have children. All the doctors can tell her is that it's probably because of her age. As she turns 40, she withdraws into an interior world of heartbreak.

Elinor's loving husband, Ted, a successful podiatrist, has always done the right thing, too. Then he meets the wrong woman at the wrong time, and does the wrong thing. Ted's lover, Gina, a beautiful and kindhearted nutritionist, always eats the right thing, but is unlucky in love and always falls for the wrong men. Soon Ted has to fight to make everything right again.

Can Elinor and Ted's marriage be saved?

What the Critics Say

"Winston skillfully comes into her own with this brave second novel." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Good grief! What a follow-up to Winston's best-selling debut." (Library Journal)
"Sometimes bawdy, sometimes moving, always hilarious...a charming, generous book." (BookPage)
"Winston has a real feel for the push and pull of a marriage in crisis, and delivers it in a brisk, funny, no-nonsense style that still comes off as respectful of the material." (Publishers Weekly)
"Once again, Winston demonstrates a laserlike ability to focus on the inescapable reality of contemporary relationships, tempering her characters' abject pain with appealing good humor." (Booklist)

    "wast of time"

    I liked Lolly Winston's first book, but this is whiny sing-songy drivel like so many other chic lit books. The narration is terrible.

    "Disappointing"

    I was pretty bored throughout this book. I'd like to see what other listeners thought.
