It is True Dickinson's forty-third birthday, and her best friends have gathered on this snowy night in Cape Cod at a trendy neighborhood restaurant to celebrate. True has never felt more alone.
It's been eight years since the death of her husband, leaving her to raise their son on her own. Both her son and her small business are thriving, and True's life is full. Coming up on forty-three makes True realize that there is an empty space in her life that friends and family cannot fill. She feels her youth and beauty slipping away, and the possibility for romance has never seemed more remote.
But everything changes the moment True and her beloved assistant, Isabelle, slide into a snow-filled ditch on the drive home. Saved by a young man she met earlier at the restaurant, True comes face to face with the opportunity to let love back into her life -- that is, if she can overcome her own fears, and if these two spirits can find a way to tame each other's wild hearts and curb each other's supremely independent natures.

The title refers to the business started by True Dickinson: a gift-of-the-month club for new babies and their moms. Aside from her flourishing business, True has a young son, a mother, friends with lives of their own, and her own feelings of loss and emptiness, until she meets a man . . . a younger man. Narrator Robin Miles delivers the story in straightforward fashion and creates various voices and accents from Cape Cod to New Orleans to color the dialogue. In the author interview at the end of the tape Mitchard expresses her preference for narrators who vocally differentiate characters. Miles does so, but, unfortunately, many of the voices she provides are unsympathetic to the characters and, therefore, do not succeed.
