What will Emily choose—happiness or sexual fulfillment? Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “Shari Peele is a perfect fit as Emily and her black middle-class world of anxiety and aspiration. Peele has great character range across both age and gender. Her skills give empathy to a story that could, with a lesser performer, sound tawdry and trite.”


  • “Griffin expertly explores the universal search for love and the difficulties that face women of a certain age.”


Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 5/24/2011

    " This was very frustrating to listen to because the main character goes around and around on one issue that she could have cleared up with one little conversation. "

    " This book was good but I can say it wasn't my favorite book. I wish that Emily and Aaron would have worked out but she did what she felt was best for her. So that is a good thing. Maybe her and the guy she met on the plane (Michael) will work out. :) "

    " This book was a very good read. It had a surprising end that left me wanting a sequel. "
