Publisher's Summary

The coming-of-middle-age story a whole generation of women have been waiting for... poised, witty, and emotionally resonant.

For 25 years, Rose Lloyd has juggled marriage, motherhood, and career, with remarkable success. It has been a life of family picnics, books and wine, a cherished house, and her own exquisitely designed garden—sunny and comfortable. But then the carefully managed life to which Rose has become accustomed comes crashing down around her when—over the course of a few days—her marriage and her career both fall apart.

Can Rose, whose anguish is barely softened by the ministrations of friends and grown children with their own problems, ever start over? Not easily. But it's amazing what prolonged reflection, the slimming effect of a lost appetite, a new slant on independence (and a little Parisian lingerie) will do. Especially when an old flame suddenly reappears.

Full of humor, clever insight, and a whimsical sense of the absurd, Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman is an irresistible and finely written fantasy for anyone who ever wondered what a certain age would look like from beyond the looking-glass - and who will find it ripe with promise that the best days are yet to come.

    "Engaging Plot And Pretty Good Narration"

    I enjoyed Buchan's book.

    Some of the heroine's misfortunes are a little predictable, so I gave it a four star, instead of a five star rating.

    But the plot keeps you going, if only to discover to just what the degree of "revenge" takes place.
