In this touching, romantic tale of new attraction and old loyalties, Jeanie is on the brink of turning sixty, and the man she’s been married to for more than half of her life has abandoned the marital bed.

When Jeanie’s husband George retreats from his conjugal duties, she is deeply hurt and very confused. Has she done something wrong? Is he in love with someone else? Her pained bewilderment turns to anger as he remains unable, or unwilling, to provide answers.

The bright spot of Jeanie’s week is Thursday, the day she takes her granddaughter to the park. There, one day, she meets Ray—age-appropriate, kind-hearted, easygoing, and downright sexy. In short, he is everything that George is not.

As her relationship with Ray begins to blossom and she begins to think that her life might hold in store a bold second act, she begins to wonder if she has the courage to take a step off the precipice of routine and duty and into the swirling winds of romance.
