Emily Aulenbach is thirty, a lawyer married to a lawyer, working in Manhattan. An idealist, she had once dreamed of representing victims of corporate abuse, but she spends her days in a cubicle talking on the phone with vic­tims of tainted bottled water—and she is on the bottler’s side. 

And it isn’t only work. It’s her sister, her friends, even her husband, Tim, with whom she doesn’t connect the way she used to. She doesn’t connect to much in her life, period, with the exception of three things—her computer, her BlackBerry, and her watch. 

Acting on impulse, Emily leaves work early one day, goes home, packs her bag, and takes off. Groping toward the future, uncharacteristically following her gut rather than her mind, she heads north toward a New Hampshire town tucked between mountains. She knows this town. During her college years, she spent a watershed summer here. Painful as it is to return, she knows that if she is to right her life, she has to start here. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Janet | 2/17/2014

    " Not up to Barbara Delinsky's usual standard. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Carol Anderson | 2/14/2014

    " This was a great read! So many of us would like to be able to do what this woman did--escape her life and technology. I would love to be able to do this even for one day. Delinsky just keeps getting better with every book she writes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Maryann Sulic | 2/8/2014

    " I persevered through the end, but it was a struggle. Good concept, but just felt it dragged. Not the usual Delinsky quality. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ruth | 2/3/2014

    " Didn't think very much of the effort or the character. "
