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 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 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 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 Ruth | 2/3/2014

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jean | 1/30/2014

    " Don't bother. This book was disappointing --slow and didn't live up to previous works. Coyotes sort of silly to me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leilah | 1/19/2014

    " Tried it for a light read on a flight. Awful. I want my $$ back! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyrissa | 1/11/2014

    " Nice book. Not the ending I wanted (felt rushed) but it wasn't a let down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jodie Aviles | 1/8/2014

    " This was book was okay, not the best, not the worst. It was interesting enough that I kept reading! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Manishita Ghosh basu | 1/8/2014

    " When you start reading the book if feel thrilled and the first few pages are very exciting. You feel that you want to finish the book in a day since its very thrilling. But in the end you dont find anything. Plain and simple rubbish. Disheartening. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Academicsupport | 1/7/2014

    " Entertaining, but full to the brim with subplots. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 11/17/2013

    " Good story but predictable - not the best and not the worst that Barbara Delinsky has written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robin Brennan | 11/9/2013

    " Interesting and a fast read. Had problems with the basic premise of taking off because work is overwhelming, but since I'm not in the fast lane with those pressures... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gillian | 7/22/2013

    " Easy and quick read. Was not like her usual books. Story was ok. I liked the fact that the lead character didn't have all the answers. Would be a good cottage/vacation book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 5/11/2013

    " Interesting subject but got a little tiredsome after about half way through. "

    " One of my favourite writers, Delinsky, doesn't come through for me on this book. Characters are too shallow, story is too simplistic. I was really disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig Meyer | 10/31/2011

    " The main character has a midlife crisis and questions her life choices. LOL. I did not read this book for entertainment, but for instruction. Still I did enjoy this easy read. It was a pleasant change from my usual read of vampires, wizards and other fantasy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linnea | 8/25/2011

    " This book was okay, but not one of my favorite reads. It was a bit too predicatable for me. "
