Publisher's Summary

A heartfelt and exceptionally human novel about the best mistakes a person can make.

Jonathan and Rosie have been together so long they finish each other's sentences - so when he (finally) proposes and asks her to move across the country with him, everyone is happily surprised. But when things suddenly unravel, Rosie sends Jonathan packing and moves back home with Soapie, the irascible, opinionated grandmother who raised her.

Now she has to figure out how to fire Soapie's very unsuitable caregiver, a gardener named Tony who lets her drink martinis, smoke, and cheat at Scrabble. It's meant to be a temporary break, of course - until Rosie realizes she's accidentally pregnant at 44, completely unequipped for motherhood, and, worse, may be falling in love with Tony, whose life is even more muddled than hers.

When Soapie reveals a long-hidden secret, Rosie wonders if she has to let go of her fears and trust that the big-hearted, messy life that awaits her just may be the one she was meant to live.

The Selfish Lady

Ugh. Barely made it through. What an awful story about a self centered bland woman and other dopey people. Sorry....
