Publisher's Summary

As her stultifying marriage is unravelling, and in the midst of mourning the loss of her creative self, Caro Tanner has a nightmare about Peter, an old love whom she hasn't seen in 20 years. She takes this as a sign he still needs her. With her three children safely off to summer camp, Caro embarks on a pre-Facebook pre-cell phone road trip to recapture who she once was and what she thinks she once had. 

Set in the sex, drugs and rock 'n roll '60s in Tucson, Arizona - when Caro and Peter were kooky, colorful, and inseparable drama students - and in the suburban '80s, when Caro's creative spark has been quenched to serve the needs of her husband and children, So Happy Together explores the conundrum of love and sexual attraction, creativity and family responsibilities, and what happens when they are out of sync. It is a story of missed opportunities, the tantalizing possibility of second chances, and what we leave behind, carry forward, and settle for when we choose. It sits in that raw, messy, confounding, beautiful place where love resides.

Did Not Enjoy

This is the story of Caro, who impulsively leaves her husband and children behind and drives across the country to find an old love, from a relationship that was never going to work. She went to college during the free love period of the sixties. As she drives across the country she reminisces about multiple sexual encounters in explicit detail. I did not enjoy listening to this. About halfway through I skipped to the last few chapters just to see how she resolved her situation. I cannot recommend this story if you don’t enjoy listening to nonstop lewd descriptions.
