divorce, she’s devastated … and bewildered. Admittedly, her marriage was in a
rut, but at least she had someone, as well as an idea of how her future would
be. Now, in the run-up to her fortieth birthday, she has to start over. With
the help of loyal girlfriends and her courageous decision to move to the city,
she gradually starts to find her feet on the ground again—and begins to make a
new life for herself.
