The coming-of-middle-age story a whole generation of women have been waiting for … poised, witty, and emotionally resonant.

For twenty-five years, Rose Lloyd has juggled marriage, motherhood, and career with remarkable success. It has been a life of family picnics, books and wine, a cherished house, and her own exquisitely designed garden—sunny and comfortable. But then the carefully managed life to which Rose has become accustomed comes crashing down around her when—over the course of a few days—her marriage and her career both fall apart. Can Rose, whose anguish is barely softened by the ministrations of friends and grown children with their own problems, ever start over? Not easily. But it’s amazing what prolonged reflection, the slimming effect of a lost appetite, a new slant on independence (and a little Parisian lingerie) will do. Especially when an old flame suddenly reappears. 

Full of humor, clever insight, and a whimsical sense of the absurd, Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman is an irresistible and finely written fantasy for anyone who ever wondered what a certain age would look like from beyond the looking glass—and who will find it ripe with promise that the best days are yet to come.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jewett | 2/13/2014

    " This book was just so-so in my opinion. Not bad enough to put down, but not riveting. "

    " there was no revenge; however the book was well well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Belinda | 2/6/2014

    " Delicate and insightful handling of the end of a 25-year marriage. The storyline has very well placed "flashbacks" that help shape the characters and gently reveal their weaknesses and strengths. This is chick lit with class and dignity. "
