Elinor Mackey has always done the right things in the right order–college, law school, career, marriage–but now everything’s going wrong. After two painful years of trying, Elinor has learned that she can’t have children. All the doctors can tell her is that it’s probably because of her age. As she turns forty, she withdraws into an interior world of heartbreak.

Elinor’s loving husband, Ted, a successful podiatrist, has always done the right thing, too. Then he meets the wrong woman at the wrong time, and does the wrong thing. Ted’s lover, Gina–a beautiful and kindhearted nutritionist–always eats the right thing, but is unlucky in love and always falls for the wrong men. Soon Ted has to fight to make everything right again.

Can Elinor and Ted’s marriage be saved? The answer is alarmingly fresh and unexpected as New York Times bestselling author Lolly Winston introduces us to characters as memorable as those of Anne Tyler and Nick Hornby, but who are indelibly all her own.

    " I can't believe I even finished this - A boring mis-mash of characters and the story just ended out of nowhere! I literally flipped the page to find one last paragraph followed by a huge section of discussion questions - I was tricked! :) "

    " This is Winston's first novel and I give it two thumbs up for a first attempt. She's witty and snarky and empowers the little voice inside of you that sometimes wants to say "no". "
