Paris Armstrong never saw it coming. With two grown
children and a lovely home in Connecticut, Paris was happy with her marriage,
her family, her life. So when her husband of twenty-four years said they needed
to talk, Paris couldn’t imagine what he was about to say.
“I want a divorce,” Peter tells her. Just like that, the
husband she adored had dumped her for a younger woman—Paris was left to figure
out how she intended to get through the next day, let alone the rest of her
The task could not have been more painful. First came the
tears. Then the excruciating attempts by well-meaning friends to “fix her up”
with men who paled in comparison to Peter. Worse yet, she still loved him.
Finally, Paris realized she was in a fight for her very survival. It was time
to move—as far away as possible.
Saying good-bye to the world she knew and loved, Paris
heads west to San Francisco and discovers being single in a world full of men
who were too young, too old, too married, or too good to be true. With her
dating track record veering between disappointing and disastrous, Paris finally
comes to the conclusion that romance is not in her future—and she makes a
decision, only for herself, that changes her life once more.
In a poignant, wickedly funny novel about getting dumped
and getting over it, about tackling life with both courage and laughter,
Danielle Steel explores what it means to start over, whether you wanted to or
not, and finding something better than you had before.
