Mary Gooch was once young and slender and carefree. But with each passing year she's accumulated an excess of pounds and worries. On the eve of her 25th wedding anniversary, her handsome husband does not come home. Shocked out of her inertia, Mary boards a plane for the first time and begins a desperate search. With a surge of energy that she hasn't felt in years, Mary fights for her husband while she reflects upon a life half lived. Accustomed to hiding behind hunger and fear, she's forced to look up at her new surroundings, astonished by how the shift in perspective has let in the light.

    " Lori Lansens is one of my favorite writers since I read "Rush Home Road" some time back. This novel is good but (for me) just does not reach the excellence and offer the heart that "Rush Home Road" did. I would certainly recommend this though. She is such a good writer and even though this was not my favorite of hers, it was pretty darn good. "

    " I am glad I found this one stuck on my bookshelf. I thoroughly enjoyed this story about Mary and her journey of change and learning to break her obsessive destructive cycle and to love who she is and live her life. "

    " I loved this book! Mary Gooch is the most memorable character I've found in a long time. Morbidly obese, trapped in her own world of obsession and fear, married to wonderful Jimmy "Gooch," the love of her life. Then Gooch up and disappears on the eve of their 25th anniversary, leaving her with $25,000 of lottery winnings and the chance for a life out of her comfort zone. Leaving small town Canada for Los Angeles - on his trail - she finds herself. And it's a joy to see her reborn. And yes, as she gains insight, she loses weight, her huge appetite disappearing along with beloved Gooch. "
