Blessed with three wonderful children and a life full of material comforts, Rick and Ellen have always had a happy, if increasingly busy, marriage. But when Rick announces that he’s been offered a promotion that will make the family pick up and move across country for a fourth time, Ellen is dismayed; she and their children have made a life for themselves in Portsmouth, not to mention that she is about to reach a pivotal point in her own teaching career. Ellen has always supported Rick’s dreams. What will he do when she tells him that she doesn’t want to start all over again for a job that will only make their lives more frantic?

    " This very short story was interesting as it began, I could relate to the conflict the couple felt, but then it turned very sugar sweet and too predictable.
    I also read a sample of Delinsky's new book, ESCAPE, which releases July 5. I think it will be interesting. "
