From the New York Times bestselling author of The Red Hat Club comes a hilarious story of marriage, love, and second chances.
When Elizabeth Mooney escaped the shame of her “white trash” family to marry Howell Whittington, the crown prince of her small town, she never dreamed that thirty years later she’d end up trapped in a loveless marriage to the cruel banker who’s foreclosing on all her friends. Then Howe has a stroke sitting up in church, and when he wakes up, he’s at the mercy of all his appetites and emotions. Transformed, Howe wants to be a real husband—which scares proper, repressed Elizabeth to death—and setting out to right past wrongs, he blackmails the town’s baddies into doing the right thing by threatening to foreclose on their mortgages. The ensuing hilarious rollercoaster ride wakes up not only Elizabeth and their marriage but the whole town and its hidebound institutions. Download and start listening now!
